It follows the story of Charlie Spring (Locke), a gay schoolboy who falls in love with classmate Nick Nelson (Connor), whom he sits next to in his new form. It is based on Alice Oseman's successful LGBTQ+ webcomics for young adults.

Lyme Regis has proven a popular filming location, with scenes for the upcoming 'Wonka' movie  filmed on the Cobb. 

In March 2019, crowds excitedly gathered near the town's seafront to catch a glimpse of Kate Winslett and Saoirse Ronan as they filmed Ammonite.
