"Inside of everyone of us is a special talent waiting to come out. The trick is finding it". Billy Elliot is one of the best movies. It is exceptional, funny, touching and sad. If you discover your talent, pursue it, nurture it and share it with the world! An outstanding performance of Jamie Bell!
Shocked that many complain about the swearing language - guess what, you are watching a movie set in work class society with characters lacking high education - naturally there is going to be lots of swearing used. Btw MOST of US movies contain almost an uninterrupted chain of F* words that makes our Europeans' hair curl. This was a pretty decent usage of F* words taking into the account where the story was set.
A must see movie!

Great story, very inspiring. Too much swearing, slang and heavy accent, hard to understand.

Billy Elliot is a great movie. But I wish
there was less swearing in it cause I think there kids out there who would like. But if you are a parent who does not like there kid to watch a movie with swearing then I would don't get this movie. But don't get me wrong Ilike this movie.

The US cut DVD is rated PG in Canada & PG13 in the USA. I mention this because someone said it was an R rated film. It's not.
