Buttwhistle is a 2014 coming-of-age indie film that tells the story of Ogden Confer (played by Trevor Morgan), a socially awkward and introverted young man who falls in love with the enigmatic Rose (played by Elizabeth Rice) after meeting her at a party. As he tries to navigate his feelings for her and muster the courage to ask her out, Ogden realizes that someone is leaving mysterious whistle sounds all over his small town, leading him on a bizarre journey to uncover the truth.

The movie explores the themes of adolescent angst, love, and self-discovery, while also infusing elements of mystery and humor. The plot is propelled forward by Ogden's increasingly obsessive pursuit of the whistle-blower, relying on his unconventional methods and quirky charm to make progress in the investigation. Along the way, he encounters a cast of eccentric characters such as a psychic neighbor, a lonely librarian, and a hip-hop obsessed best friend who help him unravel the clues.

Despite its offbeat premise, the film manages to strike a balance between its lighthearted tone and more poignant moments, capturing the confusion and uncertainty of young adulthood. The chemistry between the lead actors, particularly Morgan and Rice, anchors the narrative and propels the plot, making their romance both believable and endearing.

The movie also excels in its visual style and cinematography, using vivid neon colors and tilted camera angles to convey the surrealism and oddity of Ogden's world. The soundtrack, featuring indie rock and synth-pop tracks, further complements the mood and enhances the overall viewing experience.

Overall, Buttwhistle offers a refreshing take on the coming-of-age genre, blending humor, mystery, and romance into a unique and memorable story. It's a film that balances the sweet and the strange, and captures the awkward charm of adolescence in a fun and inventive way.

Buttwhistle is a 2014 mystery. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.1.
