What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Flight of the Butterflies is a 44-minute movie made for IMAX screens now available on DVD. Following the monarch butterfly in its extraordinary three-generational, one-year journey from north to south and back again, the filmmakers have captured the essence of one of nature's most profound miracles. At the same time, they tell the story of one husband-and-wife scientific team who spent their lives working to discover the mysteries of the flying insect's migration. There are some references to the small percentage of the genus that survives to full adulthood. However, unlike many nature documentaries, this one includes no scary predators or frightening interspecies conflict, nor does it spend time on the insects' deaths. In its IMAX format, kids must have been doubly delighted as they felt they were in the midst of the butterflies' flight. On home screens, while kids will still appreciate the magical beauty and challenges of the monarch's odyssey, it may not engage the younger ones as fully. A quietly fascinating documentary for all ages.
