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.
Quite a sweet film with a homegrown feel to it, this blends down-to-earth English humor with the character Leah, played brilliantly by Tameka Empson. The drama gets buried by the humor, which I think is good. All in all it's a bit loose in a bad way, but it's entertaining.
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 .
