The Butterfly Queen
Liam O’Connor-Genereux, 2022, USA, 78 min
Five years ago, best friends Casey and Robin parted ways. Casey wanted to draw cartoons and take over their grandparents’ sheep farm, Robin wanted to leave town and never look back. Now, five years later, Casey and Robin find themselves (against all odds) chasing a teenager through a magical, monster-infested forest, struggling to regain Casey’s stolen sketchbook so that they can get the hell back home. Trouble is, The Butterfly Queen wants the sketchbook as well, and A) she’s clever, B) she’s desperate and C) she makes the rules.
