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

    November 22, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The heart-in-hand sincerity of its worldview is what makes the film endearing and aggravating by turns.

  • 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…
  • The air and aroma of The Butterfly Tree is slushy and thick, so thick you could cut it with a knife.

    August 14, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Given how lush Priscilla Cameron's debut feature The Butterfly Tree appears, it's a real shame that the material at hand doesn't match its aesthetic.

    February 15, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Cameron strives for a quirky magic realism that she can't quite pull off. The leads are all fine, and some of the photography achieves an iridescent wonder. But the film's plotting is messy and its tone uneven.
