Visually rich drama THE BUTTERFLY TREE in cinemas from 13 July 2018

Inspired by a friend whom director Priscilla Cameron lost to breast cancer, The Butterfly Tree is a sexual coming of age story which is both an emotionally seductive and beautifully immersive experience.

Evelyn (Melissa George30 Days of Night, Home & Away – TV Soap), a burlesque queen, bewitches single dad Al (Ewen LeslieTop of the Lake) and his teenage son, Fin (Ed OxenbaldThe Visit) with her zest for life. When father and son discover they are competing for the affections of the same woman, old wounds are reopened over the death of Fin’s mother. Through the vivacious Evelyn, Fin learns the power of forgiveness and relinquishes his goddess in return for a family. In this seductive and heart-warming story, both men will discover the power of selfless love.

The Butterfly Tree which saw its worldwide premiere at the 2017 Melbourne Film Festival, and went on to screen at Toronto Intl. Film Festival in September 2018, is now set to screen at selected festivals in the UK ahead of a theatrical release in July.

“Melissa George returns as a radian, siren-like, moon-eyed florist in a visually rich and intensely styled drama that shimmers with stagey, hipster glamour”– The Guardian
