Overview

Hettie MacDonald’s 1996 romantic comedy tells the story of two classmates and neighbours who fall in love over one summer in South East London. Jamie (Glen Berry) is a shy and introverted student infatuated with Ste (Scott Neal).

The screenplay was written by Jonathan Harvey, which he adapted from his own play of the same name.
