solid direction and good performances
19 September 2020 | by mjfhhhSee all my reviews

Josh and Rachel are living their not so happy suburban lives when Josh's old buddy Bucky storms into their imperfect world, turning it all upside down.

The first feature from Sahm McGlynn is a character driven story about impending life change that everyone needs once in a while.

LOVE FLOWER has a feel of an independent play of a small New York or London theatre one can stumble on by chance. It will be popular with the indie movie crowd and can be a darling of the indie festivals.

There's solid direction here and some good performances. A slice of life drama that is hard to get going, but eventually sucks you in and you stay for the weird characters and the plot that is hard to identify. The dynamics of Joshua (Ben Lynch) and Bucky (Sahm McGlynn, the director himself) are fun to watch, as best buddies they have a real chemistry onscreen, and Anna Irving as the yoga guru and Joshua's girlfriend Rachel does more with her role than the script allowed. She definitely has what it takes to make it big if the stars align.

There's a lot to admire in this first time feature film - the performances, the subtle humour and most importantly there's something that makes the characters relatable and their relationships true.

The director should be proud of LOVE FLOWER as at the end of the day there's something to discuss, something to laugh about and something to be sad about.
