Features the films BILLY ELLIOT and SIXTY SIX, which both chronicle an adolescent boy's difficulties with his family.
In BILLY ELLIOT, the titular character (Jamie Bell) is an 11-year-old boy living in north-east 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 practising 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.
SIXTY SIX is set in the summer of 1966 and England is swept by World Cup fever. 12-year-old Bernie Reuben is also excited but for a different reason. He is looking forward to his Bar Mitzvah, the day when he becomes a man. However, the 1966 World Cup Final is scheduled for the very day of his Bar Mitzvah, leading to the possibility of a complete disaster for Bernie.

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.

Movie Reviews

Chicago Reader - 8.0/10 by Lisa Alspector A delicate balance of fantasy and realism, caricature and character study that isn't driven primarily by its plot or even the development of its protagonist.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10.0/10 by Bob Graham People who see it may feel like dancing out of the theater afterward. Go for it.
TNT RoughCut - 7.0/10 by Susannah Breslin It's the triumph of the human spirit in its never-ending quest to be an original no matter what the establishment says.
Film.com - 8.0/10 by Peter Brunette You'll feel moved and uplifted after watching this well-written, funny movie.
Christian Science Monitor - 7.5/10 by David Sterritt Trumpets the worthwhile message that ballet is just as manly and athletic as any other masculine activity - and maybe a touch more so, if you have to defy an uncomprehending community in order to pursue it.
Miami Herald - 7.5/10 by Rene Rodriguez Compared to manipulative tearjerkers like "Pay It Forward" or "Men of Honor," Billy Elliot is a model of restraint, one that earns its warmth the hard way -- by making us care about the people who are going through familiar steps.
Boston Globe - 8.8/10 by Jay Carr Bell is utterly persuasive as the boy literally yearning to leap beyond the oppressively apparent confines of his world.
Chicago Sun-Times - 7.5/10 by Roger Ebert As much parable and fantasy as it is realistic.
