We continue our selection of indie romances with 1996's BEAUTIFUL THING as our next Rialto Recommends. Jamie is a shy teenager, often bullied at school. His neighbour Ste has a rough time at home, being beaten by his father and brother. These issues bring them together and they find that what they feel for each other is more than friendship. BEAUTIFUL THING is an engaging slice of life drama that happens to double as a gay coming-of-age story. BEAUTIFUL THING captures its place and time with deceptive depth and skill. Roger Ebert said "The boys' lives contain few surprises ... but from the other characters there is one astonishment after another." While Movieline said "This movie has a sharply observed sense of family and community and astonishingly natural acting." BEAUTIFUL THING is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, Vudu, FandangoNow and others HERE.
