Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons stars as a French diplomat who falls in love with a Beijing Opera singer--who is not what the Frenchman thinks "she" is--in this tale of love and betrayal. Based on actual events. Adapted for the screen by David Henry Hwang from his Tony Award-winning play.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: David Cronenberg reins in his provocative sensibility and handles delicate material with restraint, yielding a disappointing adaptation that flattens M. Butterfly into a tedious soap opera.
