Billy Elliot

Billy Elliot The life of a coal miner's son in Northern England is forever changed one day when he stumbles upon a ballet class on his way to boxing lessons. Joining the class, but keeping it a secret from his widowed father and overbearing brother, 11-year old Billy (Jamie Bell) shows a raw talent that dancing instructor, Mrs.Wilkinson (Julie Walters) immediately recognises.

She encourages him to try out for the Royal Ballet School in London but Billy is torn between his responsibility to his family and his overwhelming desire to pursue his passion for dance.

Jamie Bell, Julie Walters and Gary Lewis al deliver outstanding performances in this uplifting and inspiring story that has become the year's most acclaimed film.

Billy is simply brillant!
