About the Movie
Rebellious, quick-witted Erica Vandross (Zoey Deutch) is a sassy 17-year-old living with her single mom Laurie (Kathryn Hahn) and mom's new boyfriend Bob (Tim Heidecker) in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley. When Bob's son Luke (Joey Morgan) moves in with the family after a stint in rehab, Erica finds her domestic and personal life overwhelmed. With Luke and her sidekicks Kala (Dylan Gelula) and Claudine (Maya Eshet) in tow, Erica acts out by exposing a dark secret of high-school teacher Will (Adam Scott), with perilous results; their teenage kicks become a catalyst for growing up in unexpected and unpredictable ways. Mixing dark comedy and teenage angst, writer-director Max Winkler (CEREMONY) and co-writer Matt Spicer (INGRID GOES WEST) create a star vehicle for blossoming talent Zoey Deutch (BEFORE I FALL, WHY HIM?) and elevate the teen movie to unpredictable new heights.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Cruelly amoral and only marginally credible, "Flower" is nevertheless wildly entertaining and at times even touching.
Fresh: As icky a comedy as you're likely to see this year, "Flower" comes from an angry place - one that is clearly more concerned about sounding provocative and clever than having anything meaningful to say.
Rotten: Mistaking provocation for insight, and failing to sell the presumed heroism of its cunning central character, the movie grows less involving with each step.
Rotten: Flower is redeemed only by Zoey Deutch's magnetic performance, which would be star-making if in the service of a better vehicle.
