Did You Know?


The film was first written about a male and female couple with Sergio being a man, but Miguel Arteta and Alia Shawkat had a hard time casting the role. Once Laia Costa auditioned for the film, they felt that she had just the right grasp on the character, and changed the story to two females. See more »

Finally, a portrayal of real-life
9 July 2018 | by hnkirkmanSee all my reviews

I've been using IMDB for years, and I finally created an account just to review this movie.

Duck Butter captures REAL human emotions, challenges, and conversations. In "24 hours", this movie takes you through all the things you may or may not experience when you're in love. I'm a straight gal, but these actresses represented all the nuances that every couple (regardless of sexual orientation) can experience: clinginess, irrational jealousy, unexplainable sadness, family anger that trickles down into every day life, desire for space and breathing room, and very real arguments about music.

I love that the movie represented two extremes of the human spectrum -- one person who is vivacious and care-free, and one person who is a little more mild and guarded.

You'll have fun watching these girls through the motions, and you'll feel sad and cringe-y. Somehow, no matter how crazy people drive us, we know that it was worth all the while to open our hearts to them and to just love them.
