FLOWER: C 

Now that I’ve seen Flower, I have even more appreciation for last year’s Lady Bird. Both are coming-of-age stories about a young woman trying to figure out her direction in life. But Lady Bird has something that Flower does not: Greta Gerwig. This film needed a writer/director with a singular voice and real life experience. Flower was written by three men that may or may not have ever spent more than ten minutes with a seventeen year-old girl. It’s a shame, really, because  Zoey Deutch does the best she can with the material she’s given as our leading lady. In the end, much like her character, Flower is confused mess.
