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.

User Reviews

 
Not bad , could have been much better but they copped out with the usual American ending!
1 January 2019 | by omendataSee all my reviews

If this had been a British production the ending would have been much darker and truer to life. This just followed the usual movie making hollywood rulebook and thus broke no real new ground!

The film was very well acted and the story paced well until the last 15 minutes where they just copped out and gave the American audiences the usual sickly, moralistic, happy ending where it should have been brutally truthful and broke the rules.

Shame!
