Words I don't see every day: butter carving. And yet, there's a whole comedy about butter carving (or butter sculpting) coming to theaters near us. Jennifer Garner is attached to star in the movie which is apparently a "political satire":
Butter follows a young orphan who, after being adopted by a Midwestern family, discovers she has an uncanny talent for butter-carving. She eventually finds herself up against the ambitious wife of the retired reigning champion in a town's annual butter-sculpting contest.
"I wanted to do a political satire," [screenwriter Jason] Micallef said, "and I was looking for some venue that people take very seriously but is also ridiculous — like politics — but at the same time is really visual."
Politics! Competition! Butter! The movie certainly has the fixin's for a successful comedy. And to be honest, butter sculpture looks like it could be a pretty interesting art form. I seriously can't wait to see how this movie turns out.
