It's a well-developed theme, and the excellent, bittersweet finale helps, but I can't shake the feeling that the film winds up being not nearly as deep as it wanted to be.

A bitterweet Spanish coming- of- age drama that shows how fear can sweep away childhood curiosity about life's mysteries.

Keeping suspense through a story that we know the ending of is no small feat.

Although Hill's love of Gaia is inspiring and although Wolens doesn't take sides, it's one of her ground crew who best nails it, explaining, 'We just need to stop the greed.'

While instructive on environmental concerns about the impact of logging, Butterfly does not reward those who seek dispassionate psychological insight into the zealous Ms. Hill.

Butterfly isn't terribly dramatic, although it does function as a good primer on the environmental movement centered in Northern California.
