Movie Info

15-year-old Frances lost her mother in a fight. The same fight which led to her father being locked up in jail for the last ten years. Frances has never forgiven the police sergeant who she feels is responsible for this. She's got fighting in her blood, just like her idol Muhammad Ali. And like Ali, she wants to be the Greatest too.

Strongly evokes a rural world stuck mid-way between restrictive age-old traditions and budding modern tendencies.

You sincerely want to believe that the film will tackle its subject matter with heart and grit -- but hopes are dashed by the opening five minutes, a disastrous melange of trauma and broken dreams that is handled about as subtly as a mean uppercut.

Float Like a Butterfly may not carry the sting of a bee, but it is worth stepping in the ring with.

It captures humanity at its best and worst, offering a message of hope throughout.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

An impressively passionate recreation of a now-distant era. Above all it is a triumph for Doupe, who scraps and bawls and triumphs like a star from the golden age.

Nov 5, 2018 | Full Review…

A gloriously unruly collision of vivid romanticism and tough, unsentimental truths about the hardscrabble lives and casual discrimination faced by Irish travellers.
