A film by Michael Winterbottom
Eunice and Miriam are a pair of unlikely lovers on a lethal road trip through Britain. Eunice, an unpredictable social outcast, one day meets Miriam, a beautiful yet withdrawn gas station attendant, and before long the two are on the road and in love. Even when Eunice starts murdering horny truckers and pesky salesmen Miriam believes she can save her friend. The question is, can Miriam make Eunice good before Eunice makes Miriam bad? The film features music by Bjork and PJ Harvey.

"A twisted British answer to Thelma and Louise!  The New ork Times
"Plummer gives her strangest, most uninhibited screen performance to date.  Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"An icily comic powerhouse film!  Cosmopolitan

Editor's Note
Michael Winterbottom's first theatrical feature is a wildly anarchic road movie in which two lesbians fall for each other while speeding through Northern England on a murder spree. Amanda Plummer stars as the exuberantly off-kilter Eunice and Saskia Reeves plays the obsessive Miriam, who falls under Eunice's peculiar spell when she stumbles into her gas station one unassuming afternoon looking for someone named Judith. Little does she realize that Eunice is a cold-blooded killer without any semblance of a conscience. By the time she does discover Eunice's predilection for murder, she's too head-over-heels in love with her to do the right thing and turn her in. Miriam becomes so obsessed with her new lover, that when she discovers a body in the trunk of Eunice's car, she insists they bury it quickly so that no one will find out. As they continue their journey to nowhere, Miriam delves into Eunice's tantalizing and reckless world of murder and begins to wonder if she can separate right from wrong herself. Winterbottom's off-kilter comedy features an electrifyingly insane performance from Plummer, and incorporates a soundtrack by tough girl bands that is a good compliment to the proceedings (PJ Harvey, Bjork, The Cranberries, etc.).

Professional Reviews

Variety
"...Breathtakingly original....From its opening shots, BUTTERFLY KISS exudes a confidence and distinctive feel that promises something rather special..." 02/20/1995

New York Times
"...[Plummer delivers a] brave, blazing performance..." 05/03/1996 p.C19

Los Angeles Times
"...A taut work of rigor and complexity, laced with flashes of pitch-dark humor..." 06/06/1996 p.F3

Chicago Sun-Times
"...The performances have a gravity about them that is unusual in the movies..." 08/09/1996 p.31

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
The wounds of mental sickness, loneliness and need in Butterfly Kiss are so deep we can hardly watch. The women begin a journey across England, Eunice killing and Miriam mostly cleaning up after her, as we begin to understand how these two deeply scarred, incomplete personalities have somehow found the perfect fit. - Roger Ebert

Los Angeles Times 8 of 10
A taut work of rigor and complexity, laced with flashes of pitch-dark humor.
