    Great performance with good direction make up for a few small script potholes and leave this a film worth catching.

    The story was very good but disappointing ending. I would have loved to see if they met and got together and she got her life together.

    This was a simple story that simply works. Eve Hewson is fantastic and shines in the few things I've seen her in, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is always extremely enjoyable, but young Orén Kinlan is a standout. The film is funny and has heart. Apple TV+ shows are always well made but their movies are hit and miss, this one hits. It's in a similar vein to CODA, but not quite at the same level - CODA was brilliant - it centres on family, love, happiness, and music with characters perfectly portrayed.

    This movie is excellent in so many ways. Phenomenal writing and dialogue, grea music and acting. I was expecting something heart warming but this movie far exceeded my expectations. It's a real gem.

    Flora and Son has an "about a boy" feel that's hard to not like. Flora's an immature mom, trying to party while her son is struggling with the police. They find commonality after she starts guitar lessons with Gordon-Levitt.

    This really just didn't tell a very compelling story. It was also heavily focused on the songs they created, which I didn't think were very good. I don't understand the generally positive reviews this movie is getting.

    Really amazing movie, so heartfelt and real. Very impressed with all of the actors and the plot went in directions that were not at all obvious.

    When you're looking for something....anything to watch on a Friday night, when you've watched everything you've planned to---then happen upon a movie by chance that makes you happy you didn't have anything else to watch---that's this movie!
