Anyone else watching this? It's a wonderful film of gay love, very realistically acted & down to earth & set in Nottingham.

Not sure if the actors are actually gay... if they aren't - good job!

I like the fact it's set in Nottingham too, one of my favourite cities... they are on the tram now... next stop Phoenix Park

I was aghast to see that this was on tonight after seeing it trailed on C4 for so long.

Sadly missed the first 10 minutes but I'm managing to catch up on Film4 +1.

It's marvellous so far, very true to life in both its acting and its direction.

I also have to add that that guy has really nice cups, I'd love a coffee in one of those.

The scenes in the swimming pool have shades of the video for 'Smalltown Boy'

I know I'm just talking to myself here but I've just noticed that Rita, Sue and Bob too is on after this ... could be a long night for me.

Downton Abbey's Miss O'Brien like you've never seen her before ... bloody love Siobhan Finneran.

The guy in the red (don't know their names ... do they have names? ) is either a really strong and sensitive actor or just 'playing himself'. He's got some very delicate and underplayed mannerisms that are quite 'gay' yet he's generally 'straight acting'. I know so many 'straight acting' gays who have those really soft mannerisms.

Tom Cullen is excellent. Just googled, apparently he is straight which makes his performance even more impressive. I like how the chemistry and interaction between them is so natural

He's awesome in that case, absolutely.

I love the chemistry but also the awkwardness, like just then when he was getting really close to the other guy and all he could say was 'just waiting for the kettle to boil'

Strangely the kissing is not gratuitous.. it's very natural. Almost like a fly on the wall documentary

None of it is gratuitous which is what makes it even better.

That sex scene was so hot simply because it was not gratuitous. A quick kiss, a rub of a hardon then straight to the awkward moment of wiping up cum with a t-shirt ...

I think his flat must be those tower blocks in Lenton. Are they still there?

I love Nottingham. It's not as bad as people think. In fact I spent Christmas in Nottingham last year

(I lived in Derby 10 years ago)

A few of my friends from uni were from Nottingham so I feel like I know it but without ever having been there ... if that makes sense.

I also had a one night stand with a guy from Nottingham last night hahaha ... just thought I'd share that!
