"[I] was really impressed by both the artistry of its execution and the acting. The story itself dealt with the complicated human desire for friendship and acceptance, and did so in a way that was both painfully relatable and triumphantly defiant. The actress/writer's personal connection to the material gave it an authenticity that really resonated for me."

"...Borne of her own life experiences, Summers imbues her character with authenticity and passion."

"...Lead Actress gives an honest and brave performance..." 

"...Summers delivers a damn fine performance and quakes with emotion and energy..." 

"...The lead actress gives an honest and brave performance [for Butterflies, the short film]. The film kept my heart racing throughout..."
