Spinning into Butter is a 2008 movie directed by Mark Brokaw and based on a play written by Rebecca Gilman. Belmont College, a liberal place, has a new problem. Racism has appeared. The heads of the college give The Dean of Students, Sarah Daniels (Sarah Jessica Parker), the job of finding who placed hate material on a colored student's dorm room door. When the hate material elevates to a more vicious level the campus explodes with racial tension. The media arrives to report what is going on, and what the college is doing about it. Sarah, who transferred to Belmont from a school in Chicago, is secretly afraid and prejudiced against black people. Since she is the one who is in charge of coming up with a solution to the growing race problem, she must face her own feelings on the subject. Will hatred and fear ruin the college or will the faculty and students come to terms with the problem of race relations?

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    In style and content, Sarah Jessica Parker starrer is the kind of earnest, talky, modestly scaled social-issue pic that seems predestined for the smallscreen.

    Los Angeles Times

    Despite the film's haphazard choices and aversion to subtlety, Parker and Williamson come off as appealing sparring partners.

  • 20

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Less a movie than an essay.
