Movie Info

Director Phil Hawkins teams with screenwriter Stephen Potts to adapt Golden Compass author Philip Pullman's novel detailing an adolescent romance gone horribly awry. When seventeen year old Chris (Duncan Stuart) and lovely lass Jenny (Jessica Blake) first met at an Oxford college ball, the ruffled later was still in the run from her ex-boyfriend Piers (Dan Morgan) - a tyrannical aristocrat. But Chris' past hasn't exactly been smooth sailing either, and as the young couple enters tenuously into an innocent courtship, a series of flashbacks reveal why their romance may be headed for tragedy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Butterfly Tattoo

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (2)

  • Disappointingly, this well-observed coming-of-age romance soon morphs into an unconvincing crime flick.

    Apr 17, 2009 | Full Review…
  • Helmer Phil Hawkins and young thesps get the awkward first moments of infatuation just right, but the screenplay's limping second half may hamper theatrical prospects.
