Movie Info

It's a natural history epic. It's a compelling detective story. It's a scientific adventure at its best. It took Dr. Fred Urquhart almost 40 years to discover the monarch butterflies' secret hideaway and prove the most incredible migration on Earth. Following the year-long annual migration cycle of the butterflies, the award-winning production team filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2011 and again in 2012 and also along their migratory

It's a story that begins and ends in Toronto and returns every year - and it's never been so spectacularly and passionately retold until now.

It's easy to forget "Flight of the Butterflies" is just a movie, as the 3-D documentary about monarch migrations looks and sounds so much like nature.

The filmmakers turn classroom material into a dense procedural. Meanwhile, they capture phenomenal footage of the monarch in its various stages, from egg to chrysalis to the butterfly that hates winter as much as I do.

At the preview...the 3D effect had scores of kids reaching out to touch the butterflies. It was as gorgeous a sight to behold as anything on the giant Imax screen.

Short, easy-to-like and informative movie is refreshingly upbeat, as bright as its subject, and at just under 45 minutes, a perfect entertainment for restless youngsters.
