Beautiful Thing


Set in a high-rise East London housing estate, it is the rites-of-passage story of two young boys who discover and come to terms with their homosexuality through playful and life affirming relationship. 



Beautiful Thing is essentially a fantasy, a coming-out fable with about the same depth and insight as a romance novel for teenagers. What makes the movie special and worth recommending are those other characters. I'd like to see a whole movie about Leah. I was pleased that Sandra finally got her own pub, and I'd like to see a movie about her managing it. - Roger Ebert.
