Broken Flowers: A Journey Of Self Discovery Sometimes Life Brings Strange Surprises

As the devoutly single Don Johnston is dumped by his latest girlfriend, he receives an anonymous pink letter informing him that he has a son who may be looking for him.

As the devoutly single Don Johnston is dumped by his latest girlfriend, he receives an anonymous pink letter informing him that he has a son who may be looking for him.

The situation causes Don to examine his relationships with women instead of moving on to the next one, and he embarks on a cross-country search for his old flames who might possess clues to the mystery at hand.

Don is a man overflowing with wealth but void of emotion. Spurned into action by his wannabe private eye neighbour, Winston, Don sets off on a personal journey to visit the former partners who may or may not have mothered his child.

They include the flighty Laura, whose daughter Lolita certainly lives up to her name.

The uptight Dora, who has settled into a sterile life with her chipper husband, Ron; the strangely distant Carmen, who makes a living as an "animal communicator;".

Finally, there is Penny, a hard-edged biker who is the least happiest to see Don.

Each confrontation leaves Don feeling more lost than the last, spinning him into an even greater state of apathetic confusion.

This movie is rated R for language, some graphic nudity and brief drug use.
