If you enjoyed "Once" or "Life Inside Out" then you'll eat up "Bread & Butter"
19 April 2015 | by (Phoenix, AZ) – See all my reviews

If "Bread and Butter" is playing at a film festival near you, or it picks up a distributor as it hopes to do, then by all means seek it out. Seen at The Phoenix Film Festival, it's a wonderful take on a modern search for a (very late blooming) love life for it's leading lady. Perfectly cast, written, and filmed - and the soundtrack is fantastic, you'll be rooting for her even if neither of her first dating partners are the one for her. Still, she learns and you love her for it. Wonderfully so, no character here is black or white, good or bad, right or wrong - just like all of us, and that's what makes this film ring true. All of her problems are not nearly solved by the film's end, but you leave seeing her better equipped to face and eager to try all that life has to offer. Word of advice - don't see this with your mother. In lieu of a real boyfriend our heroine here makes ample use of the next best thing, but cinematically in a very discrete way.
