Got plans this weekend?
How about Butter? The latest film from The Weinstein Company opens today in the United States and Canada.
When we were first invited to a screening of the film, we knew nothing about it except the cast. We thought it would be related to food, hence the invitation.
Well, it’s not about butter, the food. It’s about butter, the sculptural medium.
If you’ve never seen butter sculpture competitions at state or county fairs, you’ll be wowed by the art showcased in the film. Some of it’s tongue in cheek, but all of it made us say “Wow!”
We’re not going to provide a proper film review: We’re food reviewers, not film reviewers.
But in one sentence: We thought the film was quite the tasty spread. We’d see it again.

The cast, given fun characters to chew on, includes the boldface names in the movie poster (above) and a preturnaturally wise child, Yara Shahidi. Kristen Schaal also deserves a shout-out.
