Set in a small northern town during the miners' strike of the 1980s, Billy Elliott is the heart-warming story of an ordinary boy who discovers he prefers dancing to being pummelled in a boxing ring. But even though he has the talent - and the chance to go to a prestigious ballet school - 11-year-old Billy has to convince his gruff father and the rest of his family to let him make the most of his gifts. This classic British film is a heart-warming look at the hurdles young people may face within their own community while also being a celebration of dance and the arts as space of expression for the marginalised.
This visually spectacular, dreamlike film from Powell and Pressburger is one of the great classics of British cinema.
