Dove Review

Insect lovers unite! This film brings to the screen some wonderful scenery plus an up-close look at some of the most enticing bugs in the insect world. This is a fantastic drama-adventure about a terminally ill young boy and his belief in the magical powers of the beautiful Blue Morpho, plus the life changing journey of the one man that can help the boy.

Pete, his mother and Mr. Osborn travel to the rain forest. They encounter a journey that has many obstacles along the way when it comes to traveling with a person in Pete’s condition. They listen to the native stories regarding the enchanting butterfly and journey into the rain forest with all its splendor.

This is an inspiring movie that installs the wonder of miracles. Dove awards this edited version the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. Due to the issue of cancer in a young child it is recommended that younger children watch it with an adult.
