FLOWER & GARNET
Keith Behrman | 2003 | Drama | 104 minutes
A portrait of love and loss, hope and heartbreak in small-town British Columbia, FLOWER AND GARNET is also a bond of love forged between a sister and a brother, both of whom are on the verge of life crises. Sixteen-year-old Flower is the daughter of a broken-down man whose wife died giving birth to a son, Garnet, nine years earlier. When Flower becomes pregnant, her decision to have the baby threatens the family she has worked so hard to maintain. But it is her brother Garnet who is the catalyst : he has now reached the age at which the questions he’s asking are nowhere near as important as the answers he’s being denied.
Presented in association with the Canadian Film Institute and the generous financial support of the Klondike Visitors Association.
