Preview – Butterfly

(C) ITV.

This new ITV drama may well cause some controversy dealing as it does with gender-related issues among children.

The child in question, 11-year-old Max Duffy (Callum Booth-Ford), is a boy whose parents have separated and is bullied at school. While with his father Stephen (Emmett J. Scanlan) he is happy to play football and do boyish things, with his mother (Anna Friel) he is able to express his more feminine, true self and wears dresses.

Butterfly is on ITV at 21.00.
