Good Night Butterfly

2017 (USA) - Scott Corbett - Drama / Jewish Narratives / Period / Short Film

After her father is killed during the Watts riots, a Chinese immigrant girl moves in with the Jewish family who owned the store where he worked. There she meets their son Josh, and an attraction develops between them against the backdrop of mid-1960s Los Angeles, and against the wishes of Judith, Josh’s mother. Good Night Butterfly is a contemplative period piece about loss and longing in the troubled, destabilizing year of 1965.
