Bill Murray (Lost in Translation) stars in the comedic story of an aging Don Juan who hits the road on a revealing and humorous cross-country journey. When a mysterious pink letter informs Don Johnston (Murray) that he may have a 19-year-old son, he visits four former lovers, where he comes face to face with the errors of his past and the possibilities of the future. From acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch and co-starring Sharon Stone, Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Tilda Swinton, and Jeffrey Wright, Broken Flowers is the highly original comedy that Peter Travers of Rolling Stone says is "filled with wonderful mischief" and "brings out the best in Bill Murray."

Critics Consensus: Bill Murray's subtle and understated style complements director Jim Jarmusch's minimalist storytelling in this quirky, but deadpan comedy.

The ending is sublime, a set piece that almost makes up for the overwhelming slightness of it all.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the protagonist is a devout bachelor, now middle-aged, who has left behind many women. Characters use curse words (mostly in conversation, and at the end, during a fight), smoke, drink, and use drugs (as well as slang for drugs, especially marijuana). Stereotypical bikers briefly assault Don at the end, leaving him bloodied and unconscious. The film includes sexual imagery (a post-sex morning awakening, an adolescent girl nude [not explicit] and in her underwear) and references (to past relationships).
