Movies Beautiful Thing (1996, Glen Berry, Scott Neal) Published 4 months ago on October 26, 2018 Hettie Macdonald’s delightful feature debut stars Linda Henry, Glen Berry, Scott Neal and Tameka Empson in the seemingly unlikely romance between Jamie and Ste, from first nervous glances to the ingenious use of peppermint foot lotion. The Daily Mirror described it as ‘A superb, must-see movie,’ while The Sun commented, ‘Hysterically funny… a brilliant script’ and Premiere Magazine called it ‘The feelgood movie of the summer’. It’s a long hot summer in South London and Jamie Gangel (Glen Berry) is bunking off school more than usual, while his mother (Linda Henry) juggles job promotion and her relationship with dippy hippy boyfriend Tony. Next door is sassy Leah (Tameka Empson), who spends her day listening to Mama Cass records. In the same block, Jamie’s classmate Ste (Scott Neal), although sporty and popular at school, is bullied by his drunken father. One day Ste seeks refuge in Sandra’s flat and ends up sleeping head to toe with Jamie… production details UK | 92 minutes | 1996 Director: Hettie MacDonald Writer: Jonathan Harvey, from his own novel cast Linda Henry as Sandra Gangel Glen Berry as Jamie Gangel Scott Neal as Ste Pearce Tameka Empson as Leah Ben Daniels as Tony Meera Syal as Miss Chauhan Garry Cooper as Ronnie Pearce Andrew Fraser as Jayson John Savage as Lenny Jeillo Edwards as Rose Terry Duggan as Kevin Anna Karen as Marlene Julia-Lee Smith as Gina Daniel Bowers as Trevor Martin Walsh as Mr Bennett Jonathan Harvey as Petra Marlene Sidaway as Betty John Benfield as Rodney Barr Andrew FraserAnna KarenBen DanielsComedyDramaGarry CooperGlen BerryHettie MacDonaldJeillo EdwardsJohn SavageJonathan HarveyLinda HenryMeera SyalRomanceScott NealTameka EmpsonTerry Duggan Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes2 hours ago Miracle Workers: 12 Days (TBS Tues 26 Feb 2019) 12 Days: A troublesome human complicates Craig and Eliza’s plan, while Sanjay attempts to burnish his credentials.
