Beautiful Thing is a heart-melting story about teenage love blooming on a Thamesmead council estate. Jamie is secretly in love with his sporty and more sociable schoolmate, Ste. When Ste is badly beaten up by his violent father and brother, Jamie and his mum offer Ste a place to stay. But they don’t have a spare bedroom – or bed.
