Join us for the last movie before summer. We will be watching ‘Billy Elliott’ a highly recommended movie set in County Durham during the 1984 stirke against the Thatcher closure of British coal mines. Widower Jackie Elliott and his firstborn, fellow miner Tony, take a dim view of 11 year old Billy’s poor record in boxing class. This worsens when they discover he sneakily transferred to the neighoring otherwise girls only attended ballet class. Only one schoolmate, closet gay Michael, encourages Billys desire, aroused by the teacher, who judged him talented enough for private lessons to train and try out for the world renowned Royal Ballet audition. Only the prospect of a fancy career unimagined in the paupe quarter may twist pa and big brother’s opposition to indispensable support.
