Two lonely people learn to say it with flowers in this romantic drama. Lisa (Mary Stuart Masterson) is a business executive who has gotten used to being alone but doesn't like it very much; she was abandoned by her birth parents, and then spent most of her childhood being raised by Stanley (S.A. Griffin), an abusive foster father, after her adopted mother died. One day, Lisa gets word that Stanley has died; alone in her apartment, she breaks down and cries uncontrollably. Later the same day, Lisa gets an unexpected delivery of a dozen roses from a secret admirer. Puzzled, Lisa presses the delivery man for information on who might have sent her the flowers, and he confesses -- he sent them himself. Lewis (Christian Slater) runs a flower shop and often takes long walks through the neighborhood, trying to lose his memories of his deceased wife and child. He saw Lisa crying in her window and hoped the roses would cheer her up. Before long, Lisa and Lewis begin dating, but both have some emotional issues to resolve before their story can have a happy ending. This film offers your only opportunity of the moviegoing week to hear someone say, "Oh, there's nothing worse than a finicky agapanthis."

This movie is truly wonderful and a great representation of how to learn to leave some things behind you. One of the best love stories and the most romantic.

This movie was a truely endearing love story. It shows you why even though bad things have in life and you must not feel sorry for yourself and deal with pain in life. I love both of the actors so that's makes it better.

A hidden gem!!! Bed of Roses is a truly beautiful movie. A "quiet little movie" compared to many of the Hollywood blockbusters - but oh... SO much better!!! Christian Slater delivers. BIG TIME. This is one of his best roles (this, and The Name of The Rose) and he shows why he should be considered for the multi-layer-roles out there. The chemestry between Slater and Mary Stuart Masterson is played out with such tenderness, strength and vulnerability that one feels drawn to know more about these two characters after the movie is over. A must see. Bravo to Mr. Slater and Miss Masterson - they keep true acting alive in Bed of Roses.
