Movie Info

At first glance, it is not obvious that Abigail Evans lives with a life-threatening skin disease. She is a typical teenager: moody, rebellious, irreverent, and is also strikingly beautiful. But her life is the antithesis of normal. Abbie grew up in hospitals, cared for by her protective mother and father. She then came into her own in honky tonks, selling merchandise for her dad's band. But just like any other 18 year-old, Abbie yearns for a life of her own. Butterfly Girl charts Abbie's journey towards a new understanding of how she must balance her past with her future, her parents with her independence, and her disease with her desires. But what price must she pay for that freedom?

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

Bell's film captures the spectrum of emotions here: Abbie's desire for more as well as her fear, her parents' need to protect her as well as their wish to set her free.

Bell says she didn't want to make a disease movie, but instead a human portrait of survival. She succeeds.

A distressing story, to be sure, but one that belongs to a young girl whose unforgettable fortitude is undeniably encouraging.
