Broken Gardenias Synopsis

Cool, darkly funny and always surprising, Broken Gardenias is a touching comedy-drama about two very different girls who embark on a journey of self-discovery and blossoming love through the heartland of America.


Jenni, uber-nerd and something of a savant, is having a tough time. Luckily, just as she hits an all time low she meets Samantha, a street hustler, and immediately they develop a bond. Together they set off on a road trip to find Jenni s long lost father, and along the way, in addition to a series of brilliantly conceived encounters, their unlikely intimacy grows.

Genuinely engaging road movie! This film is about a young woman named Jenni  who seems out of place and down on her luck. An unpleasant scenario results to her meeting a street-smart lesbian named Sam. There is a spontaneous bond between them and they  ultimately set off for LA to find Jenni's long-lost father. This film has some sweet and tender scenes and with very impressive acting performances. Nonetheless, this isn't only about Jenni looking for her father but also it's a journey to her self-discovery, among other things. This movie has been nominated as Best Feature Film at the Independent Filmmakers Showcase IFS Film Festival in the US.  Worth checking out!

This indie film seems to strike the chords at the right places. Poignant, tenderly touching and with characters that are solidly-established! I find this film as a bit of the dark comedy genre but in a way was able to tackle delicate issues in a sensitive and gentle manner. There are impressive cinematic shots and Morocco as Sam and Grey as Jenni both pull convincing performances. Interestingly, Grey also wrote the screenplay of this film by Kai Alexander.
