STAGE – Beautiful Thing 2006

The plot, which is set on an inner-city housing estate, centers on the friendship between Jamie (Andrew Garfield)  and Ste, two classmates and neighbors, as well as the slowly growing love between them. Together, the two boys discover humor, warmth, and Mama Cass music through their loud-mouthed next-door neighbor, Leah, as well as Jamie’s mother, Sandra, the neighborhood bartender, and Tony, her neo-hippy boyfriend.

"...very beliveable..."

"The relationship between Andrew Garfield's hesitant yet determined Jamie and the more masculine awkwardness of Gavin Brocker's Ste is very believable."
