From acclaimed writer/director Jim Jarmusch (Coffee And Cigarettes) comes a comedy/love story of different proportions…or is it all that different.

Broken Flowers

In the film Broken Flowers, Don Johnston (Bill Murray), a devout bachelor destined to date his life away, finds himself in a quite common situation, broken up. As his latest ex (Julie Delphy) leaves him, he receives a letter explaining that he has conceived a child in a past relationship and that he should be aware that his son, who is 19 years old, is looking for him.

Don decides to hit the road and pay visits to past girlfriends with the hope that one of them will help him unravel this mystery. While basking in the open road, Johnston finds himself compelled to examine his life and the relationships that he has and has had with women.

Starring in Broken Flowers is: Bill Murray, Sharon Stone, Jeffrey Wright, Jessica lange, Julie Delphy, Frances Conroy and Tilda Swinton. The film is produced by Focus Features, and written and directed by Jim Jarmusch.

When thinking about Broken Flowers, I just can't get High Fidelity with John Cussack out of my head. Guy in relationship. Girl breaks up with guy. Guy goes hunting for past relationships to figure out his life. Sound quite similar to me, however High Fidelity is a cult classic and I do not think that Jarmusch would entirely rip off something so already craftily done. Furthermore Jarmusch has somewhat proved that he is a capable and original writer and director, therefore he does deserve the benefit of the doubt.

Jarmusch has been quoted saying that he wrote the film entirely around Murray. With that in mind, I am anticipating that this film with have the quirkiness and wit of Woody Allen flick.

Broken Flowers is scheduled for an August 5, 2005 limited release. You can check out the trailer HERE, and the clip HERE.

Stay tuned for updates.
