"The Blue Butterfly" a movie based on true story. Starring William Hurt as a renowned entomologist, Marc Donato as a terminally ill 10 year old, and Pascale Bussieres as the mother.
Filmed in Montreal and the rain forest of Costa Rica, the colors in the film are especially vivid.
As her terminally ill son's only wish is to be able to see the elusive blue butterfly, Blue Morpho, this mother convinces the renowned entomologist to accompany them on a trip to the rain forest of Costa Rica in hopes of finding the blue butterfly before her son dies. Nothing prepares the viewer for the steamy beauty of the rain forest, and when a blue butterfly appears, well, it is just incredible photography that gripes the mind and the heart.
Miracles do happen.
One of my co-workers kept seeing this DVD come in, she thought about checking it out, but was so afraid of being saddened by the end of the movie. Finally, I took it home and watched it. I was able to convince her to check it out and watch it.
Hope you will give it a try. It is only 97 minutes long.
