Ariela looks at Flower (2017) Tribeca 2017
This film definitely had its moments. I enjoyed a lot of it. It's definitely a dark comedy. It reminds me of the 80's teen movies, but definitely a lot darker and more screwed up. (The director mentions that it's kind of like a John Hughes movie but starring the kids who are just a bit too weird and screwed up to be in a John Hughes movie.) I like that analogy.
I didn't enjoy the very weird ending at all though. It just seemed a bit ridiculous to me. It's definitely a film I'm still thinking about. The cast was great, I loved Zoey Deuch, Kathryn Hahn, Joey Morgan and Adam Scott.
