Click past the jump to check out the trailer and read a plot synopsis.

Set in the highly competitive world of championship butter carving, Butter blends social commentary, outrageous comedy and heartfelt drama in telling the story of the ambitious Laura Pickler (Garner), the self-anointed First Lady of Butter Carving. Refusing to accept that her husband (Burrell) wants to step down after his 15-year run as the “Iowa State Butter Carving Champion,” and therefore end the Pickler family's reign in the spotlight, Laura takes a stab at the title herself. But her bid for glory is complicated when two unlikely contestants enter the race – one, her husband's hard-living mistress (Wilde), and the other a 10-year-old foster child named Destiny (Shahidi). Enlisting the help of her high school sweetheart, Boyd (Jackman), Laura will stop at nothing to be crowned champion, even if it means resorting to sabotage. Part political satire, part Capra-esque comedy, Butter is a story about what it means to win at all costs and against all odds.

"Butter" will available On Demand starting September 7 and in theaters on October 5.
