Frankly, Mr. Shankly's rating of the film Beautiful Thing

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.
