Winner of four international film awards including ” BEST SCRIPT” and “BEST FILM”

“Beautiful Thing” tells the story of two teenage boys, neighbors in a London high-rise housing project, who gradually become aware that they are homosexual. But a funny thing happens: the most interesting scenes involve the characters around them, who all but steal the movie. The boys' lives contain few surprises, but from the other characters there is one astonishment after another.”

“'Beautiful Thing,'' directed by Hettie Macdonald from a screenplay by Jonathan Harvey, is very well acted. Mr. Berry and Mr. Neal capture every blush and awkward gesture of two shy adolescents stumbling together in terror out onto some very thin ice. Ms. Henry is wonderful as a woman whose fighting spirit masks a streak of hard-bitten tenderness.”
   Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“Beautiful Thing might be the most beloved of all the gay-youth movies released in the late '90s.”
   Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
