Butter's Final Meal (2020). Butter's Final Meal: Directed by Paul A. Kaufman. With Mira Sorvino, Annabeth Gish, Mykelti Williamson, Brian Van Holt. A lonely obese boy everyone calls "Butter" is about to make history. He is going to eat himself to death-live on the Internet-and everyone is invited to watch. When he first makes the announcement online to his classmates, Butter expects pity, insults, and possibly sheer indifference. What he gets are morbid cheerleaders rallying around his deadly plan. Yet as their dark encouragement grows, it begins to feel a lot like popularity. And that feels good. But what happens when Butter reaches his suicide deadline? Can he live with the fallout if he doesn't go through with his plans?

Alex Kersting, who plays u0026quot;Butteru0026quot; did a really great job. I hope weu0026#39;ll be able to see him in more movies because heu0026#39;s extremely likable and real.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYou get to hear some great saxophone music. Two of my sons played it when they were in middle school. I love that music was illustrated as an effective tool to help teenagers (and anyone else for that matter!) derive emotional strength during trials.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI liked it when a group of buddies worked on a Bucket List together. I started my Bucket List back when I was a teenager.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIt made me so sad and mad to see so many teenagers behaving so badly and treating one another in such atrocious ways.
