Broken Flowers | 2005 | R | - 6.4.5

Bill Murray stars as an aging Don Juan who, on the very day his most recent lover dumps him, receives an anonymous letter informing him that he has a 19-year-old son who may be looking for him. Convinced by his neighbor, an armchair detective, to travel across the country and track down the women he knew 19 years ago, he ends up confronting his past. Also with Jeffrey Wright, Sharon Stone, Frances Conroy and Jessica Lange. Directed by Jim Jarmusch. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 6 - A fully nude teenage girl (her bare breasts, buttocks and pubic region are visible) walks into a room where a man is sitting.
 A man and a woman wake up in bed together (we see the woman's bare back and part of her bare breast), she is lying on top of him and kisses him (it is implied that they have had sex).
 A teenage girl wearing a skimpy robe answers a door to a man and invites him into her house. A woman in a skimpy robe and a teenage girl in bra and panties stand on a porch and wave goodbye to a man. A woman wears a short skirt and a man admires her bare thighs; a man also admires a woman's legs. A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage.
 A man and a woman kiss, and a man kisses a woman on the head.
 It is suggested that two women may be having a relationship. A woman accuses her lover of being unfaithful and leaves him.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man holds a man, and another man punches him in the face (we see him with a black eye, and a bloody eyebrow and mouth). Two women fight over a man and they shove and slap each other. A woman shoves a man.
 A woman talks about her husband having died in a car crash on a racetrack and a man talks about a woman having died in a car accident. A man sits at a cemetery grave site and mourns. A dog barks aggressively at a man as two other men approach him.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Relationships, responsibility, commitment, family, love, philandering, having children out of wedlock, agendas, computer industry, philosophy, changing lives, mystery, understanding women, hippies, free love, animal communication.

MESSAGE - There is nothing that can be done to change the past; all we can do is live in the present. We should learn lessons from our past behavior.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
