To our modern eyes, it all seems suspiciously like the work of some genetic engineer who took the innocent apple genome and slipped in a gene from a strawberry or a clown fish, but in fact all the genetic tinkering was done by the apple itself during its evolutionary journey from the wild forests of Kazakhstan to the fields of Europe and America. Over time, I started thinking, I got to come to earth and have this amazing experience of all these trees that were grown and bearing, and all these old-timers who would take me out into their fields and show me things and take me on trips down these old roads. I would knock on somebody’s door, and next thing you know I’m eating with them. It was like gift after gift after gift. And I started thinking, Do I have any responsibilities with this?

Harvey was the writer of Beautiful Thing, the long-running play which became a hit as a Channel Four film. It established his as a unique voice: working class, coarse but clever, never far from camp. It doesn't bother me if I'm labelled a gay playwright. It means papers always refer to me," he says, wafting his hands in the air, "as Jonathan 'Beautiful Thing' Harvey, which suits me just fine. Since then, there have been other plays, Babies and Boom Bang A Bang among them, observational comedies about sexual etiquette and its transgressions. Although Harvey now lives in Pimlico, with long-term partner Richard, his accent is still solid Scouser, his voice so deep that the mike I've clipped on him struggles to pick out half his vowels. I was lucky to grow up in Liverpool when I did," he says, "because there was a kind of renaissance of talent in the Eighties: Alan Bleasdale, Willy Russell.

I hated the dialogue in this play, and the story really didn't go anywhere, which would have been okay had I liked the characters more.

I received this video for Christmas and have fallen for it deeply. I've watched 'Beautiful Thing' every day -- I can't get enough of it. The story is honest, down-to-earth and very, very funny. Jamie and Ste will steal your heart!

This is the actual script from the original stage play. It is VERY helpful in sorting through some of the SE London accents and slang in the movie. There are scenes and dialogue that are not in the movie that give further background to the story and character development. A GREAT love story. A MUST READ.

I recommend this book to everyone. The story of Beautiful thing is a great story about a different adolescence which is an unseparated part of our lives in today's society. the story is not too fiction and it touched my heart graetlly. thanx... Dror G.

I first found this film in local library and fell in love with it. It is a simple and honest love story, I laughed and I cried all the way through it, I have also performed in the play as the main character Jamie.
