This is a great movie for the whole family. You can't usually say that about most other mentionable gay movies. I'm going to have my heterosexual friends over to watch it as well. It's a great movie with a great lesson. The ending is the best in any ... Read More

I think that Beautiful Thing is a movie, that tastefully displays how love between gay guys should be. The fact that Ste had trouble at first trying to except his sexuality, and then coming to terms and dealing with it, was very moving. I like that J... Read More

A Beautiful Thing comes very close to dipicting a parents reluctant acceptance of their childs confirmed homosexuality. The English wit is a bit much to grasp the first time you watch the film. But because you love the film, you will catch more Briti... Read More

Beautiful Thing

The title says it all as it's definately in a close tie with Maurice for my favorite gay-theme movie of all time.

The movie is wonderfully acted, well written and has plenty of great humor to boot!
