Movie Info

In early 1970s San Francisco, blind aspiring singer-songwriter Don Baker (Edward Albert) is living away from his overprotective mother (Eileen Heckart) for the first time. Free-spirited actress Jill Tanner (Goldie Hawn) moves into the apartment next door, and they bond over music and literature, but when Don's mother makes an unexpected visit, she clashes with the headstrong Jill, assuming that she'll get bored and leave Don, just as his last girlfriend did.

Audience Reviews for Butterflies Are Free

  • Apr 03, 2010
    A sweet romance that's quite entertaining and fun.

    Witty and unpredictable but the whole storyline won't crypt its conservative and almost liberal views from another era.The universal "quality" of the play isn't remembered for its general causes of freedom rather Eckhart on a subtle performance and a noisy-juicy Goldie Hawn.If you exclude the typical ending,it's a feel-good movie and not a pompous "relationship movie" like Closer by Nichols.

    Here's an obscure one. An early Goldie Hawn movie (I think she is underestimated). Edward Albert plays an inspiring young blind man. I like it because it was originally a stage play and it was surprisingly modern and still relevant. I share the sentiments of the young characters wanting their funeral to be a celebration. A good little romantic comedy.
