Elderflower by Ben Mallaby

A woman opens a flower shop, then discovers its location used to be a front for a business with unusual clients.

Emily is living her dream: she just set up shop as a florist. But things don’t go as planned when she learns her new business used to be a front for an entirely different venture, and Emily is soon faced with decisions that could change her business — and perhaps even her life.

This charming short comedy hums along with stylish brio and verve, powered by a perfectly set-up comic situation and strong performances by the film’s entire ensemble, many of whom are elderly performers in rather unusual roles.

But the bawdiness inherent in the film’s central premise is balanced out by a rather sweet romance, developed beautifully by a smart, perfectly pitched script and nimble camerawork to capture it all.

“Elderflower” is a wonderfully memorable hybrid of rom-com and sexy romp that both inspires titillation and giggles, making for an engaging, whimsical experience you won’t soon forget.
