Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
One of Michael Winterbottom's breakthrough films, Butterfly Kiss finds the prolific and adaptive director putting his own spin on the lovers-on-the-lam genre to disturbing effect. Without shying away from the elements of violence and revenge, Winterbottom places his emphasis on the desperate need of his characters. The fetish gear that Amanda Plummer wears beneath her clothing, for instance, works both as a sign of her strength and as a tangible symbol of her suffering. Both Plummer and Saskia Reeves deliver convincing performances. As a trigger-happy schizophrenic, Plummer has the flashier role, but Reeves proves every bit as convincing as a woman so exhausted with her life that she goes along for the ride in this deeply interesting spin on both Thelma and Louise and Natural Born Killers.
