Inside every one of us is a special talent waiting to come out. The trick is finding it.

Starring Julie Walters and newcomer Jamie Bell, the film (based on a real-life story) follows the progress of little Billy Elliot, a motherless 11 year-old from a poor Durham pit village.

When young Billy chooses ballet classes over boxing lessons his life is changed forever. He decides to keep the lessons secret from his father, a coal miner, but when his ballet instructor persuades him to try out for the Royal Ballet School in London, Billy must make the choice between family responsibilities and his dreams...

Billy Elliot received plenty of recognition at the Academy Awards, picking up nominations for Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and Best Screenplay.

 Will make your heart dance

A rapturous cinematic debut for theatre director Daldry, bringing us the uplifting story of the boy in a Yorkshire mining town during the protracted mining strike of the Thatcher years who swaps his boxing lessons to try out as a ballet dancer. It's nowhere we haven't been before, but at least accompanying us this time are some glorious characters, beautifully played, and a very sharp eye for detail and humour. Bell is sensational as the dancing boy, but Walters is letter perfect as his hard-bitten ballet teacher, and Lewis heartbreaking as the recalcitrant miner slowly beginning to learn about his son.
