User Reviews: I’m just going to touch on the ending. Many people say it shouldn’t have been included, but I disagree. Whilst I didn’t like it, I think it was necessary. A young person in a similar situation may see this film and learn from it. Without that ending, they may make the same mistake. Kids can be cruel, and that shouldn’t be overlooked.
I think it’s a very well written film that shows the day to day problems a young trans person may face.
I was in a very dark place when I was younger, and watching ‘Beautiful Thing’ changed my life. This film is a gem, and I hope it will do for others what Beautiful Thing did for me.
