Movie screening: ‘Beautiful Thing’
Kane G2 7pm-9pm
Based on a stage play by Jonathan Harvey and adapted by him, is a kind of enchanted, urban slice-of-life tale about a gay teen, Jamie (Glen Berry), who is in love with the boy next door, Ste (Scott Neal). Hampering Jamie’s progress on the romantic front is his fear that his mother (Linda Henry) will find out, as well as concern over complicating Ste’s existing problems. While both were vaguely aware they might be gay, neither had ever acted on their impulses. Once they decide that they’re attracted to each other, neither is sure just what to do. Winner of 4 International Film Festival Awards.
