Koh's report of the june 14 th meet...
What is Beautiful Thing?
Beautiful Thing is a film. A film about Jamie
and Ste, two lads from Thamesmead, London, who discovered that they like
to be a lot more than just friends. The problems they come across during
the film are captured by director Hettie MacDonald in a witty, touching
and very realistic manner.
Who are we?
We are a couple of blokes with very strong
feelings about Beautiful Thing.Not only because it is a good film, but
because it has meant a lot to several of us. We
hope the film will help bring encouragement and affirmation to many young
people who are going through the same experience as the two boys. We also
hope it will bring understanding and support for them from their friends
and families. We hope it will make everyone who sees it feel that all the
things they want in life are possible.
We feel these (mainly
dutch) links are definitely worth visiting.
Moody's Beautiful Thing website (english)
for any reason you are unable to follow this ling, or any other on this
site, please drop us a line, Tell
us which link is not working, the error-report you are getting, whom your
provider is, and when you tried to follow the link. That gives us some
means to convince Davie we should have a mirror of his site.
Internet Movie Database. (english) For all those people that like to
know all there is to know about films, this is a huge database with info
on every film you could possibly think of. If it's a slow link, try the
Boys4Boys homepage . Boys4Boys is a fidonet-style network , partially
targeted for the same audience we are aiming at. This is a dutch site.
And don't forget to visit the homepage
of the designer!
What are we having in store?
We want to provide a means of communication
for all those people who have something to say after seeing the movie.
We intend to do that by building the dutch equivalent of the english mailing-list,
and want to provide yet another opportunity for people to connect to the
We intend to build a mirror of the english
website by David Moody. Mainly because some of the dutch free internet
providers do not allow access to sites outside of the Netherlands.
We want to try to become an intermediate between
David Moddy's merchandise and the dutch buyers. We want to do this to try
and reduce shipping-costs, probably by trying to place bulk-orders and
taking up stock on the most wanted items.
We intend to offer the newsgroup alt.movies.beautiful-thing
on these pages, and are currently working on the newsgroup becoming availiable
on our public NNTP server, since there still is no public NNTP server that
we know of, carrying the newsgroup.
We want to try to reach as many people as
we can, and keep them informed of whatever is going on involving the movie.
On June 14 1997 there has been a gathering in London, where we met several
other people like us with very much interrest in the film, and we visited
some of the filmed locations. Pictures and a report will be featured on
this site shortly.
And finally we want INPUT. So, if you have
something you want to share with us, let us know about it. All the information
we can get will be appreciated. If it's about the website, the links, the
fanclub, the film, it does not matter, we want you to tell us all about
