Butterfly (2019) La Femme International Film Festival

Fashion model who is tired of her life and want change heads out into the desert and meets a loner living in the middle of nowhere after her car runs out of gas.

I am not going to lie, I loved this film up until the closing minutes. The interplay between Jade Lorna Sullivan as the model and Micah Fitzgerald as the loner is perfect. the discussions are heady and the emotions seem to be on target.  It's a beautifully acted and plotted film almost to the end.

The problem for me is not so much the ending, but how it comes about which is so sudden and out of left field. It kind of worked, but at the same time it seemed overly silly.

How the ending plays out in the finale minute aside BUTTERFLY is 22 minutes of kick ass discussion and amazing performances. It is absolutely worth tracking down at the La Femme Film Festival this weekend or where ever it is playing.
