We gave it a B+

After years of crossing paths with The Perfect Woman, our hero wins his lady. But she and her young son are both HIV-positive.

For Fans of…
Brian Fies’ Mom’s Cancer.

Bottom Line
Frederik Peeters’ charming autobiographical vignettes in Blue Pills, about broken condoms, pediatric-ward visits, and daydreams about philosophizing mammoths improbably add up to tender romance. B+
