    ITEM#: 2509394

    Billy Elliot (Jamie Bell) is an 11-year-old boy living in northeast England in the mid-1980s. While his gruff father and brother are taking part in a massive coal miners strike, Billy goes to boxing lessons and furtively plays his dead mother's piano out of loneliness. One day Billy notices a ballet class nearby. Intrigued, he begins practicing and taking lessons from Mrs. Wilkinson (Julie Walters), a tough-minded teacher. Billy begins to fall in love with ballet but keeps his lessons a secret from his family, who struggle to put food on the table while the strike drags on. When his father finally learns the truth, a family crisis erupts, and Billy struggles to prove that dancing is more than just a hobby--it's his dream. BILLY ELLIOT is a touching and heartwarming story that avoids cliches by setting the story in the grim mining town of northern England amid economic hardship and sacrifice, showing the joy and release that dancing provides for Billy. Newcomer Jamie Bell, who does all his own dancing in the film, deserves special credit for his performance as Billy.

    • Good movie, good service

      I already had the movie, used it as a gift. Quick response and totally satisfied. I have used Overstock frequently this year and have not been disappointed in the service or product quality.

    • Great price!!

      This is one of my favorite movies. I bought copies for my brother and sister's families after taking my nieces to see the Broadway musical. I also gave away my copy to a friend who fell in love with the movie after I introduced her to it. This order was my replacement copy. Great service as usual. I would buy from Overstock again and again.

    • This Film is a Gem

      For years I have been recommending "Billy Elliot" to anyone who would listen. This story is about the triumph of love over poverty of spirit, finances, and seeming lack of opportunity. It sings the song of promise as it shows one boy's journey through the rough terrain of lower class prejudices, wrenching home dynamics, societal pressures, and driving inner needs. If you've ever had a dream, this story might just wake it up again!

    • What a movie!

      This became one of my top ten the first time I saw it. There is a lot of gritty film before the payoff at the end, but well worth it. It has moments of humor and anger and desperation, and moments that will take your breath away with sheer joy and warmth. The cast does a magnificent job, and you will not regret seeing this.

    • Billy Elliott

      I first heard of "Billy Elliott" as a theatre production while visiting London in April 2007. It was a fantastic play and I had to see the movie, of course. The movie was just as memorable as the stage production - it's a must see, very moving and inspiring in a very unique way. However, it's not suitable for those who are offended by the "f" word since it's used often as part of the coalminer's Bristish dialect. If you are looking for something new to enjoy get "Billy Elliott", you'll love it.
