pivic's rating of the film Beautiful Thing

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.
