Flower is a dark comedy-drama that explores the lives of Angelenos, who are trying to figure out their lives and their relationships. It follows Erica, a rebellious and sexually promiscuous 17-year-old girl, her troubled mother, Laurie, and Laurie's boyfriend, Bob. Erica spends most of her time pulling quick scams with her friends, Kala and Claudine, to raise money to bail her father out of jail, whom she believes is innocent of a crime he didn't commit.

One day, Erica meets Luke, a quiet and reserved 20-something-year-old man, who is having a hard time dealing with his own issues. When Luke reveals to Erica that he has been sexually abused in the past, Erica tries to form an awkward relationship with him, which soon becomes more complicated when Erica discovers that Luke is the son of the family her mother is seeing.

As Erica attempts to heal Luke's emotional wounds, she begins to understand the complexity of her own family's issues, including her mother's mental health and substance abuse problems. Despite her rebellious and careless lifestyle, Erica soon realizes that she is the only one capable of helping her family get through their troubles, and she takes on this responsibility without hesitation.

Throughout the film, Erica's character evolution becomes more evident and her desire to create a family unit for herself, her mother, and her new love interest is an interesting contrast to her previous selfish behavior. The story provides a unique perspective, highlighting the fact that the family isn't just who you're related to biologically, but the people you choose to keep around and support.

Zoey Deutch delivers an outstanding performance, capturing Erica's free-spirited attitude and sarcastic wit, while also portraying the underlying pain and loneliness that drive her actions. Kathryn Hahn is equally extraordinary as Laurie, who struggles with her past mistakes and attempts to find redemption through her relationship with Bob. Meanwhile, Tim Heidecker impresses as Bob, who is trying to be the stabilizing force in Laurie's life but also dealing with his own insecurities.

Flower tackles some difficult topics such as sexual abuse, depression, drug addiction, and teen rebellion, but balances them with enough humor to prevent the film from becoming too heavy. The movie also has a unique visual style, incorporating vibrant colors and quirky camera angles to match the film's offbeat tone.

Overall, Flower is a compelling and thought-provoking film that delves deep into the complexities of family and the challenges of growing up. The story is refreshingly honest and raw, and its charming characters and witty dialogue make it a must-see for anyone looking for a fresh twist on the coming-of-age genre.

Flower is a 2018 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.0 and a MetaScore of 45.
