I've always denied this movie for thinking it'd be silly and melodramatic, but it was, actually, quite a surprise. As said below, it's a very beautiful/sensitive portrait of growing old and coming out with well-dosed tones of drama and humor. The use of music is particulary pleasant as well.
This is why I tell my friends I am sick of US gay cinema. This film tells the story of coming of age and coming out in the tough streets of a London Housing project. It is poignant and very uplifting. I will never be able to listen to the song "I am 16 going on 17" without a lump in my throat. Wonderfully Done .
Lover, friend, enemy, mother, son, neighbors, no matter who you are, in the end let's go down to the street and dance.
