Gay coming of age tale about Brit suburban teen, Steven (Silverstone), deciding to come out of the closet. Steven's only confidante is fellow outsider Linda (Brittain). Then he has an unexpected encounter with popular jock John (Gorton), who's confused about his sexuality and terrified that anyone will suspect he's gay, even to the point of helping his jock buddies gay-bash Steven. Eventually, Steven decides secrecy is not worth the pain. Good performances in a somewhat self-conscious drama. Adapted from Wilde's play "What's Wrong with Angry?"
