Ovo je prvi film Hettie Macdonald sa veoma dobrom glumom Geln Berry-a (Jamie), Scott Neal-a (Ste) i Linde Henry (Sandru). Ben Daniels se pojavljuje kao Sandrin zanimljivi ljubavnik, koji joj preporučuje da se ne obraća ženama kao da su ptice jer takve reči joj oduzimaju moć. Film Beuatiful Thing uspeva da pokaže realni strah s kojim su suočeni gej tinejdžeri, iako je rešavanje problema prikazano u jednom optimističkom maniru.

Film Beautiful Thing ima osećaj za socijalne teme kao filmovi kasnijih 60-tih I radih 70-ih. Film istražuje reperkusije koje doživljavaju dvojica tinejdžera, koji su otkrili ljubav jedan prema drugome. Film poziva na toleranciju, koji pokazuje strah ali malo od homofobije koju ovi karakteri mogu doživeti u društvu.
Film se fokusira na Jamie-a, tinejdžera čija majka Sandra je menadžerka u jednom pabu, koji veruje da je netalentovan za sport i koji otkriva da je gej. Jamie, živi pored Ste-a, školskog sportskog heroja, čija je mračna tajna da ga pijani otac tuče svakog dana. Posle jednog takvog prebijanja, Sandra je uvela Ste-a u njihov stan i počinje da deli krevet sa Jamie-em. Ste je postao regularni posetilac, tako da se između njih razvila međusobna privlačnost.

Ste je zabrinut da njegov otac i brat ne saznaju za to, dok Jamie navaljuje da njihova veza bude otvorenija, tako da ga odvodi u lokalni gej bar. Svoju vezi kriju od Sandre sve do trenutka kada je krenula da ih prati do gej bara jer je dobila anonimnu dojavu.

Film je baziran na pozorišnoj predstavi Jonathan Harvey-a, koji je pisao i scenario za film koji se fokusira na njihova osećanja koja gaje jedan prema drugome i koja koriste kao odbranu od svih aspekata netolerancije koje doživljavaju.


Film je lagan za gledanje i slobodno ga možete pogleati čak i u krugu familije. Za neke roditelje bi bio izuzetno poučan.

English:

REVIEW
btThis tender story of two teenager’s sexual coming of age in a working-class development in London is an inspiring, tender, emotional tale. Jamie is a reserved teen, close to his pub manager mom, who prefers old Hollywood musicals to sports. His friendship with his hunky neighbor Ste, a fellow student who suffers through a troubled family life, soon develops into a sexual and eventually a loving relationship. How the two boys tentatively handle their nascent sexual drives and how it affects their family and friends is handled in both a fresh and surprisingly upbeat fashion. A wonderful comedy-drama and possibly the best coming out film to date.

  • Plot: A tender love story set during a hot summer on a South-East London housing estate. Jamie, a relatively unpopular lad who bunks off school to avoid football, lives next door to Ste, a more popular athletic lad but who is frequently beaten up by his father and older brother. Such an episode of violence brings Jamie and Ste together: Sandra (Jamie's mum) offers refugee to Ste, who has to 'top-and-tail' with Jamie. Hence, the story tells of their growing attraction for one another, from initial lingering glances to their irrefutable love, which so magnificently illustrated at the end of the film. In deals with the tribulations of coming to terms with their sexuality and of others finding out, in light of Sandra's unwavering loyalty and defence of Jamie and the fear of repercussion should Ste's family find out. The plot is set against sub-texts of Sandra's desire to manage her own pub, and thus escape the estate, and of her new relationship with her hippy boyfriend Tony; and of Leah, the brassy girl next door who has been expelled from school and spends her time listening to Mama Cass records and tripping on a variety of drugs.
