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.

Watch Beautiful Thing (1996) - Alternative Versions.
This is one of those great British dramas set in a typically grim
environment but shot with positivity throughout. Having grown up around
the area in the film and being only a few years older than the featured
boys, it was a joy to see life there depicted in the film.
I agree with all previous comments about the actors and how
true-to-life it feels. Although slightly exaggerated in places, this
film is a great comment on London working class life as well as being
focused around a gay-based storyline.
However, I wanted to add that this film also comments on the complex
class system in the UK which explains why Tony was dropped by Sandra.
Many non-British viewers may not have picked up on this. Thoughout,
Tony is shown as a middle class character who doesn't really fit into
the working class environment. He uses different slang words to the
others, has a 'posher' accent and has slightly different attitudes to
all the other characters. He and Sandra come from different worlds. As
Sandra says, she has been fighting all her life, whereas he has had
evertyhing given to him on a plate. Ultimately, this relationship was
never going to last. Life in London (and the UK) is still spilt into
different social classes, although they do mix a little more than they
used to. But you can often tell where someone is from by their accent
and their choice of words. This was used to great affect in the film.
Overall, a light-hearted look at life on a London council Estate with
some great performances... one of my favourite films.
