Aro Recommended Broken Flowers

 

USA 2005, 107 minutes
Dir. Jim Jarmusch
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Road Movie, Independent

Topics: Mid-life.

 

Aroview: A beguiling middle-age lament starring Bill Murray, unfurled in typical low gear by the world's 'coolest' director, Jim Jarmusch.

Playing an ageing bachelor with a colourful romantic history, Murray receives an anonymous letter about a son he's never met, prompting him to (reluctantly) embark on a road trip to visit his 'old flames'. This cues a series of vignettes featuring a range of maturing, high profile leading ladies (Stone, Lange, Swinton). Like most Jarmusch fare, this plays it cool, distant, and not quite articulated.
