Wildflower is a beautiful Christian film that explores the power of forgiveness. Two broken souls meet on a fateful night. Chloe Moray has nightmares of a mysterious event. She has suffered from a past trauma and is estranged from her mother. Josh has lost his beloved girlfriend who died a year before on a mission trip that he pressed her to take. He can’t forgive himself or bring himself to return to church where his brother is pastor. The two cross paths and Josh and Chloe start to realize that Chloe’s visions may be true and related to a cold case missing person from Chloe’s youth.
I loved this movie. The characters were great. I love how both Chloe and Josh were flawed people trying to figure out where to go in this world. I loved how the story was overall a story of facing your past, admitting your mistakes, seeking forgiveness, and learning to trust. There was no easy resolution to the story, it was a realistic look at what it takes for someone to grow as a person and move beyond a traumatic experience.
I also enjoyed the spooky atmosphere to the story and the mystery. It was intriguing. It felt like a great suspenseful Hitchcock movie.
The bonus features included a retrospective, trailers, and a group discussion guide. This would be a fun movie to watch with a book club or church group.
