Billy Elliot, 2000

Billy_Elliot-3

The film is set during the 1984–1985 UK miners’ strike, and centres on the character of 11-year-old Billy Elliot, his love of dance and his hope to become a professional ballet dancer. Billy lives with his widowed father, Jackie, and older brother, Tony, both coal miners out on strike, and also his invalid Nan, who once aspired to be a professional dancer in Durham. Jackie takes Billy to the Sports Centre to learn boxing, but Billy dislikes the sport. He happens upon a ballet class that is using the gym while their usual basement studio in the Sports Centre is temporarily being used as a soup kitchen for the striking miners. Unknown to Jackie, Billy joins the ballet class. When Jackie discovers this, he forbids Billy to take any more ballet. But, passionate about dancing, Billy secretly continues lessons with his dance teacher Sandra Wilkinson’s help.

    esta pelicula es la mejor que he visto, creo, es muy buena. billy es realmente asombroso en cuannto a expresarlo que siente con el baile; otra cosa que me encanta en que respete a su amigo y lo aprecie a pesar de ser diferente (homosexual).
    FELICIDADES AL CREADOR DE ESTA BELLA HISTORIA!!!
