The film was shot in three weeks on a small budget with fees deferred to those involved. For the soundtrack for the film Sandie Shaw re-recorded the song "Always Something There to Remind Me". Also on the soundtrack was the Bronski Beat song "Hit That Perfect Beat" which was a hit in Australia and the UK. An early scene was filmed in the State Nightclub, a prominent Liverpool venue in the 1980s. The film was a critical success and assisted Liverpool in becoming the second most filmed city in the UK after London.
