“Butterfly Kisses” takes on a bold issue and tries to approach it dispassionately. Unfortunately the movie failed to engage me. I think it’s because the main character is labeled right from the beginning, thus the viewer has no time to get to know him as a person. He’s reduced to his condition/situation, and IMO that doesn’t work in a movie that revolves around one character.
