Broken Flowers 2005


The resolutely single Don has just been dumped by his latest lover, Sherry. Don yet again resigns himself to being alone and left to his own devices. Instead, he is compelled to reflect on his past when he receives by mail a mysterious pink letter. It is from an anonymous former lover and informs him that he has a 19-year-old son who may now be looking for his father. Don is urged to investigate this "mystery" by his closest friend and neighbor, Winston, an amateur sleuth and family man. Hesitant to travel at all, Don nonetheless embarks on a cross-country trek in search of clues from four former flames. Unannounced visits to each of these unique women hold new surprises for Don as he haphazardly confronts both his past and, consequently, his present. (read more)

Broken Flowers Movie Review by Ilana (8/22/2005)

It's no LOST IN TRANSLATION, but it is quite good.

The above description provides a good summary, so I won't reiterate the plot. I will say, however, that there is one major flaw in the storyline that bothered me throughout. Don gets this letter, and then goes on a journey to try to uncover which ex-lover wrote the...

Bill Murray is on a search. He receives an anonymous letter in the mail on pink stationary from an old flame stating that he is the father of a grown teenage son and that the boy is now possibly searching for him. His friend Winston, played convincingly by Jeffrey Wright, obsessed with detective work, maps out an entire...

Broken Flowers Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (5/8/2007)

This film is slow and painful and lovely and it really feels like a slice of life. It follows Don Johnston ("with a t"), played by the tragic clown Bill Murray, a long-time bachelor who receives a note telling him he has a nineteen year old son wiht no return address or signature. With the help of his neighbour (the...

Broken Flowers Movie Review by Movie Addict (3/9/2007)

This was my first Jim Jarmusch movie. I have a friend who I think is in
love with him. I wasn't crazy about Lost in Translation, so I thought I
would give Bill Murrary another chance to impress me. He didn't. I just
don't get that emotionless face of his. He just doesn't seem to express
anything. Maybe I am just not...

Broken Flowers Movie Review by Ezra (2/13/2007)

Greatness is the least I expect from Jim Jarmusch, and he has yet to disappoint me. This excellent film once again proves him to be a master of subtle characterization. The title refers to the many women in the past life of the main character, Don Johnston (Bill Murray) whom he encounters on a long road trip searching for...
