Billy Elliot is the heart-warming, feel-good celebration of a young boy living out his dream. Set in County Durham in northern England during the mid-1980s, this gripping tale of triumph over adversity brings every detail of Billy's life to vivid life; from the bawdy lingo to the life-shattering miners' strike. The rough, gruff, working-class world starkly contrasts with Billy's peaceful ballet class escape.
