Butterflies are Free is a 1972 bittersweet comedic drama directed by Milton Katselas, based on a play of the same name by Leonard Gershe. The film follows Don Baker (Edward Albert) a young blind man who leaves home and his overprotective mother (Eileen Heckart) to rent an apartment in San Francisco. Don promises his mother that he will return home in three months if he can't make it on his own. While living in San Francisco, Don meets neighbor and aspiring actress Jill Tanner (Goldie Hawn). Jill is immediately attracted to Don's sense of humor and the two fall in love. When Mrs. Baker comes to San Francisco for a surprise visit, she finds her son in bed with Jill. Mindful of her son's unsuccessful first romance a few years earlier, Mrs. Baker takes Jill to lunch to dissuade her from dating her son. Her interference succeeds and Jill breaks off the relationship. In the end, however, she comes to realize that her love for Don is stronger than she imagined.moreless
