Based on a true story, The Blue Butterfly tells the story of a terminally ill 10-year-old boy whose dream is to catch the most beautiful butterfly on Earth, the mythic and elusive Blue Morpho. His mother persuades a renowned entomologist to take them on a trip to the jungle to search for the butterfly, leading to an adventure that will transform their lives. Written by
The Blue Butterfly is based on a true story about a nine year old boy dying of a brain tumor whose last request is to capture the blue butterfly for his collection. He and his mother enlist the help of a renown entomologist to take them into the jungle to find the insect. At first the entomologist refuses, but eventually relents. They spend several days searching for the butterfly and have some dangerous encounters. Everyone learns a lot about life and nature. The scenery is great, but the films moves slowly in many spots. Other than some slow spots it is a relatively heart warming film. Excellent acting and top notch technically.
