A Magical Film appropriate for Children and Adults

"A terminally ill boy who is interested in entomology dreams that
his life will be changed if he can just see and capture a rare Blue Morph butterly that inhabits the rain forests...so he persuades a leading Canadian scientist to take him and his mother on the mission.
William Hurt is outstanding in the role of an imperfect man who cares for the ill boy in a fatherly way...perhaps to undo the psychological damage he foolishly inflicted on his own daughter who he abandoned to continue his scientific pursuits. All the acting is exceptional but the real "star" is the Costa Rican rain forest itself. This film displays beautiful and moving pictures of this colorful world of insects, frogs, and plants. Although the plot is formulaic, the movie succeeds in touching our hearts and souls. I have no difficulty recommending it for the whole family."
Simply Heart warming!

"This movie brought tears and a smile. Inspired by a true story, a terminally ill ten year old boy's dream is realized when a Scientist who admits he's 'not good with kids' agrees to take him with him to the rainforest to seek out the almost mythical/magic-like Blue Butterfly. The movie is deeper than it seems, and we realize that all of life is a true miracle and capable of its own mysterious magic. I found this story inspiring!

"While on an out-of-town trip a while back, I was fortunate to see an advance showing of this beautiful film, with good acting and a really nice ending that had me leaving the film with a really good feeling! Should win an Academy Award for best cinematography for the rainforest scenes! I can't wait to get a copy on DVD, so my entire family can watch it."
