User Reviews

A sweet tale of gay youth, that caused a storm in England.
14 November 2000 | by ashworthsimonSee all my reviews

The tale is about two school boys who discover a love for one another, and run away to the seaside. It was made by the BBC, and was the first of it's kind. It caused a lot of political controversy. There are actually two different versions of this tale. The one that was released has one of the boys going back to his girlfriend. However in the original he leaves his girlfriend and goes back to his friend (the gay happy ending).

The film is beautifully written and acted, and will be enjoyed by both a gay and straight audience.
