Movie Info

Mark Gibson directs this quirky comedy about golf, drunks, and divorcees. The film focuses on pro-golfer and ex-con Lionel "Ex" Exley (Campbell Scott), who comes to New Orleans in search of his golf clubs. He soon finds himself consorting with decadent upper-crust types, such as alcoholic lawyer W. Firmin Carter (Jared Harris) and hot-to-trot divorcee Rachel Van Dyke (Laura Linney). Later, when Carter mysteriously disappears, Ex gets embroiled in an insurance fraud scheme. This film was screened at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival.

Critic Reviews for Lush

All Critics (5)

By the time the last half hour rolls around (and believe me, it takes a long time for that to happen), the film has abandoned any pretense of being coherent and becomes an all-out mess of confusion.

Audience Reviews for Lush

** (out of four) A slow and uneventful little movie about an alcoholic (Campbell Scott) who returns home to New Orleans and befriends a man in a bar (Jared Harris). They begin meeting with two party sisters (Laura Linney & Laurel Holloman) at various golf club luncheons. That is until Harris disappears and Scott becomes the suspect.
