Critic Consensus: Flower proves Zoey Deutch can bring even the most preposterously written characters vividly to life -- and that she isn't quite enough to carry a fundamentally flawed film.

Critic Reviews for Flower
Everyone here is simply a mismanaged thing to be moved around an isn't-that-shocking storyboard as needed. It's a shame, as Deutch shows real commitment to a role that demands the exact opposite ...
There isn't a single kernel of emotional truth to be found in "Flower," a lamentable dark comedy that treats subjects such as teen suicide, pedophilia and drug use with the nuance of a jackhammer.
Doesn't have a dull frame in it, thanks mainly to the star-making performance of Deutch ("Everybody Wants Some"), who dazzles the screen with her mix of humor, sensuality, volatility and vulnerability.
Deutch's portrayal of Erica is truly impressive, giving us a fully fleshed character who's both vulnerable and remorseless.
It feels like the work of indie filmmakers weaned on Todd Solondz movies, adopting all of the ugliness but none of the insight, without even shock value to show for it.
