Storyline

Three aspiring actresses set out to break into the cut-throat world of acting in Los Angeles. Naomi is on the verge of stardom, Joe struggles to keep her head above water and Elsa is a fresh face on the scene. As each young woman is forced to face her deepest fears and insecurities, they all discover the lengths to which they will go to fight against failure. The promise of Hollywood is tempting, but what will they do when that promise is broken? How will they cope when pushed to their breaking points? Butterfly Caught offers a glimpse into the darker side of Hollywood's bright facade, exposes the seduction of fame and captures the thirst for relevance in a city that cycles through talent and destroys ambitions.

Nice but Predictable effort
19 September 2018 | by kinemagineSee all my reviews

A tragedy with use of symbolic like surprising situations but overall ist mostly predictable for a grown up with life experience. But it could maybe help for younger people who try their luck in a cruel business.
