In English class today, we saw a short movie called "The butterfly circus". It is a beautiful story about a man called Will, who was born with no limbs. The movie shows how he manages to go from being in a state of mind where everything is hopeless, to hoping for a better life witch he in the end accomplishes.
The film takes place in America during the great depression. In the beginning, we meet Will, the man with no limbs, and a very small amount of hope. But this changes when one day he meets a circus director who gives him hope for his future. Through the movie, we do not only follow the men, women, and their progress, but also a caterpillar. I think that this little ant, symbolizes the change Will goes through. He is a beautiful butterfly, captured in a caterpillar’s body, waiting for his time to shine.
Nick Vujicic, who play will, was born with no limbs.
I loved this movie, everything about it; the setting, the plot, and of course the moral of not giving up the hope. I would defiantly recommend this short film!
