Describing Flower, the second feature film by Max Winkler as idiosyncratic would be the tip of the iceberg. The trailer centers on sexually promiscuous 17-year-old Erica (played by the versatile Zoey Deutch), a teen who spends her free time scouting for adult men she can fellatiate then blackmail. Sorry to disappoint, but Flower is less a titillating exploration of a girl owning her sexuality and more about the lengths people are willing to go for those they care about. Encapsulated within the set-up of a dark comedy, Flower finds delicate moments of connection and healing in the strangest of places – extortion and kidnapping.
