County Durham, 1984. While the miners are striking, young Billy discovers that he prefers ballet to boxing. It's also a beginning for director Stephen Daldry, previously known for his stage work, and for actor Jamie Bell, who bagged 10 best actor awards for his performance.
This is a film with a lot of charm, a lot of humour and a lot of heart. - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
