Movie Info

"LOTUS EATERS follows a group of young Londoners as they struggle to find meaning in their lives while masking their discontent with sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll. The story centers on ex-model and aspiring actress Alice (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) as she struggles with her relationship with Charlie (Johnny Flynn), her drug-addicted ex-boyfriend. The fashionable group of friends epitomizes a new modern "lost generation" reminiscent of Ernest Hemmingway and his cohorts. Featuring performances by lead actor Johnny Flynn, "Lotus Eaters" contains an evocative soundtrack comprised of original music from some of London's most notable indie artists. (c)

  • Even though the handsome black-and-white lensing is no substitute for a compelling story, it helps, infusing the skin-deep sketches of emotional enervation with aesthetic energy - for a while.

  • Lotus Eaters wants desperately to be a portrait of the beautiful and the damned, with its tale of West London rich kids doing drugs and shagging each other, but it's more like a spectacle of the spoiled and annoying.

  • Overflows with underdeveloped characters and plotlines.

  • Like its characters, Lotus Eaters is a visual treat-and emotionally vapid.

  • Maddeningly shallow-maybe that's the point-but McGuinness does have talent.

    Apr 3, 2013 | Full Review…
  • A braying, caricatured ensemble which spouts poor dialogue and drowns out anything more tender or well-observed that the film may wish to say about the elegantly wasted.
