Billy Elliot in a nutshell: Against the backdrop of the British miners’ strike that his family are involved in, young Billy Elliot finds he prefers ballet to the boxing classes his dad has been sending him to. Despite other people’s prejudices against ballet, Billy attempts to follow his dream with the help of an unconventional dance teacher.

Why Billy Elliot is inspirational: Ballet may not be your thing, but the movie has enough in the way of achievement against the odds to leave you positively inspired. Some of the dance sequences will have you well and truly up for it.
