The heart-in-hand sincerity of its worldview is what makes the film endearing and aggravating by turns.

Top Critic

This rather underpowered tale of sexual awakening and grief proceeds at a leisurely pace before a couple of late scenes that strive to outdo each other for sheer melodramatic overreach.

August 23, 2017 | Full Review…

With its melodramatic highs and lows, The Butterfly Tree is every bit as adolescent and as troubled as its protagonist.

Cameron may be an expert when it comes to creating visual magic but images aren't everything. Words do matter.

It is a bold and promising work, rich in imagery and led by uniformly strong performances.
