Harrison's Flowers is a suspenseful political drama about a missing journalist in war-torn Yugoslavia. Photojournalist Harrison Lloyd (David Strathairn) has decided to change his career for the sake of his family, but opts for one last dangerous assignment to cover the conflict in Croatia. He charges his young son Cesar (Scott Anton) with keeping his prized greenhouse flowers alive. When his wife Sarah (Andie MacDowell) finds out he has been presumed killed while covering combat in Croatia, she travels to Eastern Europe to investigate. She finds assistance from his fellow frontline photographers Eric Kyle (Adrien Brody) and Marc Stevenson (Brendan Gleeson), who are already accustomed to putting their lives on the line. Together, they eventually track Harrison to Vukovar, where the Serbian-Coratian conflict has reached a dramatic climax. Director Elie Chouraqui realistically depicts the 1991 Balkan War an accurate use of names, places and unflinching recreation of the atrocities on both sides.
