Charles and I watched Get Real back to back with Boyfriends.
Another English 'dramatic comedy.' Pretty, closeted Steven is our star. In English fashion his trysts are largely conducted in the public loo.
Through the amazing luck available only to those living in a pop culture creation the mostly studly, desirable jock in school become his secret lover. The movie proceeds along briskly but unadventurously enough. The movie pretty much hangs on Steven's amiability (or maybe just his fetching face).
At the end his beau beats Steven up in front of other jocks so they won't who uncover his sexuality. This inspires our hero to come out before the whole school. I couldn't help but applaud this but it was mostly the act and not the actor.
