Wildflower: Film That Teaches Us to Slow Down and Smell the Roses

Hey there, fellow movie buffs! Have you ever had those days when life feels like a whirlwind, and you’re just trying to keep your head above water? Well, Kiernan Shipka’s character in “Wildflower” knows exactly how that feels. She plays Bambi, or “Bea” for short, a high school senior who’s juggling school, work, and taking care of her neurodivergent parents. And if that wasn’t enough, she’s also facing the daunting task of deciding on her future.

Now, before you roll your eyes and think, “Ugh, another coming-of-age movie,” hear me out. “Wildflower” is not your average teen flick. It’s a heartfelt and relatable story about growing up too fast and learning to appreciate the good things in life.

One of the things I appreciated about this film is how it tackles the topic of neurodivergence without turning it into a sob story. Bambi’s parents are portrayed as real people with their own quirks and personalities, rather than just a plot device to elicit sympathy from the audience.

And let’s talk about the cast for a minute. This movie boasts an impressive lineup, including Alexandra Daddario, Jean Smart, Brad Garrett, and Jacki Weaver, to name a few. It’s clear that these actors brought their A-game to the table, and their performances elevate the film from good to great.

But don’t take my word for it – check out the trailer below:

Now, I know what you’re thinking: “But when can I see it?” Fear not, my friends! “Wildflower” hits theaters on March 17th, and if you’re not the type to leave your couch (I don’t blame you), it’ll be available on digital on March 21st.

And if you’re still not convinced to give this movie a shot, let me leave you with this: there’s a scene where Bambi and her friend spot a cute guy and speculate that he’s thirsty. And before you know it, the conversation takes a turn towards… well, let’s just say it’s a reminder that we’re all human and have certain, uh, biological urges. It’s a playful and relatable moment that had me chuckling, and it’s a testament to the film’s ability to balance heavy themes with lighthearted moments.

In conclusion, “Wildflower” is a coming-of-age movie that stands out from the rest. It’s a reminder that life moves fast, but it’s important to slow down and appreciate the little things. Plus, there’s a thirsty dude in it, so what more could you want?
