Different Flowers


Friday, Nov. 10 at 9:15pm
Tivoli Theatre

On the day of her big Midwestern wedding, persnickety bride Millie (Emma Bell) jilts her fiancé (Sterling Knight) at the altar with the help of spunky younger sister Emma (Hope Lauren) and embarks on an unexpected journey. Produced by Shelley Long (“Cheers,” “Outrageous Fortune”) — who also stars as Grandma Mildred — “Different Flowers” is the debut feature from writer and director Morgan Dameron. A love letter to the heartland that was filmed entirely on location in Dameron's hometown of Kansas City, Mo., “Different Flowers” is about learning to follow your heart. And sometimes, in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself. The film also features St. Louis native son Sean Gunn. Hailing the film’s “relaxed Midwestern charm and female-empowerment storyline,” the Hollywood Reporter also singles out its first-time director for praise: “Dameron, a former assistant to J.J. Abrams at production company Bad Robot, has taken note of her mentor’s skillful touch with emotionally loaded material in crafting her two lead characters.”
