About the Movie
The Blue Butterfly tells the extraordinary story of a 10-year-old boy, diagnosed as terminally ill, whose dream is to catch the most beautiful butterfly on Earth, the mythic and elusive Blue Morpho. His mother persuades a renowned entomologist (William Hurt) to take them on a trip to the Costa Rican rainforest to search for the butterfly, leading to an adventure that will transform their lives. And so, their journey begins - a journey of courage, redemption and love. Inspired by a true story, this is a magical film about a courageous young boy and a jaded man who chase a dream, and whose lives are forever changed. The only way to catch a miracle is to believe in it.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The patronizing, gratuitous sentimentality undermines what could and should have been a simple story of courage and beauty.
Fresh: Pete McCormack's script only occasionally yields to melodrama. Mostly it allows the characters to breathe freely, expressing a greater range of human emotion than just love and sympathy.
Rotten: Feels as forced and sentimental as one of those disease-of-the-week melodramas that were once the mainstay of U.S. television.
