Family movie nights usually involve any combination of the following- singing, dancing, laughter and animated characters in the literal or physical sense. We always have a great time together, however as my kids are maturing, enjoying more mature subject matter is a thought-provoking change of events. Not every movie makes the cut for family movie nights, however, the fascinating new thriller Wildflower is a captivating movie which also shares a powerful mental health message that is not always hot topic, yet a conversation that needs to be had within families.
Thank you to the Wildflower social media team and FlyBy Promotion for the courtesy of providing a promotional copy of Wildflower for the purpose of facilitating this coverage.
"With an underlying message of hope for victims of trauma, WILDFLOWER explores the mind of a young art student as she pieces together clues in the mystery of a missing girl. In the search for truth, her mind begins to unlock memories of her own painful past, which have been blocked for many years."
Creatively gifted with a resilient spirit, college student Chloe Moray (Ramos) finds solace from a difficult childhood in her art. But when a terrifying dream begins to recur night after night, Chloe starts to believe that it might be a suppressed memory and that she may be connected to the strange disappearance of a teenage girl twelve years earlier. Her search to find the answers sends her on a journey that forces Chloe to confront her own past traumas, while at the same time, helps her unlock a mystery that may bring a killer to justice.
As our family watched and discussed Wildflower, we touched upon the topic of the powerful reminder that "hope can be found even in the darkest, loneliest moments". The movie Wildflower offers us the reaffirming message of hope when facing the trials that we all inevitably encounter– "You’re not alone.” Family movie night and any quality family time support and emphasize the importance of staying connected and involved in the lives of our family.
