The only one who knows the teenager's secret is his friend Linda (Charlotte Brittain).

    It's not perfect, but the film features an interesting plot and generally strong performances, especially from the lead character.

    This is a coming of age and coming out story, even though it is set in the U.K., is still close to something I relate to. Well written and acted. There is no drama for drama sake. Very accurate for real life gay teen experience - even down to the chubby friend-girl! I even thing from the point of the parents is well told. Great movie, a lot of fun and very lovable characters!

    I liked it. Good acting. Very real, characters were good. I liked seeing the development of the main character. His emotions were raw and so true. Loved his speech near the end. I think it is probably a very real representation of what its like being a gay teen (although I cannot completly guarentee that, considering I dont personally know the feeling.).
