Broken Flowers @ The Art Theatre, Sept. 23

To follow up on a previous post, the new Jim Jarmusch/Bill Murray film Broken Flowers is coming to Boardman's Art Theater on Friday, September 23rd. Here's a snapshot of the film's plot via the official website:

In the new film from acclaimed writer/director Jim Jarmusch, winner of the Grand Prix at the 2005 Cannes International Film Festival, Bill Murray stars as Don Johnston.

The resolutely single Don has just been dumped by his latest lover, Sherry (Julie Delpy). Don yet again resigns himself to being alone and left to his own devices. Instead, he is compelled to reflect on his past when he receives by mail a mysterious pink letter. It is from an anonymous former lover and informs him that he has a 19-year-old son who may now be looking for his father.

Don is urged to investigate this "mystery" by his closest friend and neighbor, Winston (Jeffrey Wright), an amateur sleuth and family man. Hesitant to travel at all, Don nonetheless embarks on a cross-country trek in search of clues from four former flames (Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Sharon Stone, and Tilda Swinton). Unannounced visits to each of these unique women hold new surprises for Don as he haphazardly confronts both his past and, consequently, his present.

So there you have it! Oh, and if you can't get enough of the film, just drive to Bloomington's Castle Theater, where it opens September 30th.

Likewise. And the soundtrack looks pretty good, as well. I loves me some Holly Golightly.
