Memorable Movies: Beautiful Thing

In Beautiful Thing (1996), shy Jamie and athletic Ste are teen boys who live near each other in the London projects.

Both boys think they could be gay, and finally explore their feelings when Ste is allowed to stay over at Jamie’s place after an incident with his abusive father.  There, the boys grow close and open themselves up to the idea of homosexuality, while Jamie’s caring mother, Sandra, and quirky teen neighbor, Leah, offer much needed emotional support.

Preceded by 93%, a coming out monologue written and acted by Hamish Annan, 2016 Short & Sweet Festival awards winner.
