March 15, 2018
The irreverent handling of weighty issues comingles with a bubbling, underplayed emotional consequence that explodes in a wacky final act.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
March 15, 2018
Very well-written, acted, and directed, this dark comedy pulls off a difficult stunt: making a deeply objectionable character interesting enough to follow all the way along her messed-up journey.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 15, 2018
Max Winkler's darkly funny film is a daringly tricky coming-of-age tale that both loves and heals its imperfect characters.
March 15, 2018
But any miscalculations in tone or narrative are well worth the opportunity to spend ninety minutes with Deutch, who brings a tremendous amount of depth, humor and energy to a character that feels like a breath of fresh air.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
March 15, 2018
Even with the ways it handles some dicey thematic material, Flower is an engaging ride that largely serves as a vehicle for the excellent Deutch.

March 15, 2018
Cruelly amoral and only marginally credible, "Flower" is nevertheless wildly entertaining and at times even touching.
March 14, 2018
A collection of great performances, led by a truly exceptional one, in search of a script that's worthy of them.
March 13, 2018
Deutch's presence is undeniable and irresistible, forcing us to love a character that other actresses would struggle to find redeeming qualities in.

March 13, 2018
[Zoey Deutch] carries the film, appearing in every scene, and gives an injection of gritty reality to a character who could otherwise have felt like a stand-in for the sexually curious millennial woman.
March 8, 2018
Even when the movie ends, we feel like we're only scratching the surface. Still, how refreshing to see a coming-of-age story that's less concerned about a teen losing her innocence than it is in how she might earn some of it back.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
March 7, 2018
Flower is a bold, unpredictable, and unconventional dark comedy with a career-making performance by Zoey Deutch.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
February 22, 2018
It is that rare commodity in today's superhero-driven cinema, and unless I'm forgetting something, one has to go back as far as Igby Goes Down to find an honest, brave, and bracingly comic look at adolescence such as this.
January 8, 2018
Flower is a dark comedy with touches of Bonnie and Clyde towards the end and definitely deserves your consideration.
May 4, 2017
It's full of great lines and small pleasures, particularly the performances, including yet another layered and memorable Kathryn Hahn turn.
April 25, 2017
Flower makes for an audacious and tonally tricky comedy that is aided immensely by a star-ready Zoey Deutch.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
April 20, 2017
"Flower" is gifted with the charismatic, uber-magnetic personality of Zoey Deutch, a terrific force of nature who shines throughout.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
March 4, 2021
The beauty of Flower is less in its wonky storyline and more in its effervescent performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 23, 2020
Flower acts as a prime example of work that goes completely off the rails and, in attempts to reground itself, just deepens itself in a pit both narratively and ethically.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 18, 2020
Really, there's nothing cute or quirky about an underage kid who keeps a penis sketchbook of all the adults she blackmails, but this film seems to be trying to convince us otherwise.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

...it is a shame that Max Winkler's debut, with its muddy gender politics, isn't a better film.
