Trivia

Each lead character has a corresponding butterfly and color to go along with that butterfly. Melanie is the yellow Colias Alexandra butterfly, a species that doesn't sequester toxins and is easily eaten by its prey. Paris is the Morpho Peleides butterfly whose wings are a bright iridescent blue and is the only butterfly of her class whose wings are bigger then that of the male. Charlotte is the Greta Oto or "Glasswinged" butterfly, who easily adapts into it's surroundings. Katrina is a bright red and brown, like the Vanessa Atlanta aka "Red Admiral" butterfly, whose name is after a figure in Greek mythology, a strong yet feminine woman who faces obstacles and backlash for refusing to follow gender norms.

Brave Performance
21 June 2018 | by elana-safarSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Soho Film Festival. The lead actress gives an honest and brave performance. The film kept my heart racing throughout. It is a raw look at bullying and resilience. It was also well-shot and well-scored.
