It’s shallow, it’s simplistic and it all works out a little too easily, but the movie’s very existence remains a cause for celebration.

There's abundant joy, spirited resilience and sweet humour on tap that should be especially infectious for young LGBTQ audiences, or anyone with experience of outsider stigmatisation.

A solid adaptation, even if its camp exuberance is a bit muted on the screen.

A charmer, every bit as sunny, confident and ultimately compelling as Jamie himself.

This adaptation of the hit stage musical replicates the effervescent joy of its predecessor, but struggles elsewhere.

It's bubbly and fun, with toe-tapping musical numbers that are geniously staged.

Positively glowing, it just might be one of the sweetest gay films to come out of England since Beautiful Thing.
