"Young Fin (The Visit's Ed Oxenbould) and his father Al (Ewen Leslie) are grieving the loss of Fin's mother three years before, albeit in very different and singular ways.

I was lucky enough to see this film at New Farm last night and I LOVED it. So richly detailed and beautiful but with a very powerful story that had something to say. All the actors Melissa George, Ewen Leslie and Ed Oxenbould were fantastic.


The Press Reviews

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

  • 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. Full Review

  • Saddles its story with too much obviousness and convenience to have the desired impact. Full Review

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

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