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

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.

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…

It may look like a vibrant and heartfelt story, but its colourful façade masks an empty and deeply uncomfortable situation.

February 9, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | 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.
