Set against the background of the 1984 Miner's Strike, 11-year-old Billy Elliot stumbles out of the boxing ring and onto the ballet floor. He faces many trials and triumphs as he strives to conquer his family's set ways, inner conflict, and standing on his toes.
Wonderful, charming, with great acting. Jamie Bell's performance was definitely oscar worthy.
Wonderfull movie, great performances………..I'm VERY suprised this isn't on more lists……
Predictable and forgettable. Had suggestions of a decent kitchen sink drama but was too idealistic and feelgood. Moments of character development included Billy's family switching from angry resentment of ballet to whole-hearted support in the blink of an eye.
