Broken Flowers (2005)

Film details


Comedy. Don Johnston, who has grown old rather than matured, believes that if he loses the love of one woman another will arrive to replace her. The departure of his girlfriend, Sherry, coincides with a letter, purporting to be from a former lover, that claims Johnston has a teenage son. His neighbour traces Johnston's relevant ladyfriends and sends him off to confront his past. With the premise established, Johnston can revisit four women and glimpse the different lives he might have led.
