Billy Elliot | Monday Night Tights: Ballet Film Series | Mills College

Monday Night Tights: Billy Elliot | Mills CollegeA gritty coming-of-age drama about a young son of a poor English coal miner who dreams of being a ballet dancer.

Pushed to take boxing classes by his father, one day at the gym, Billy notices a ballet class taught by hard-bitten Mrs. Wilkinson (Julie Walters). Sensing a raw and natural talent, Mrs. Wilkinson offers to teach the lad for free in preparation for the local auditions to the Royal Ballet School. Directed by Stephen Daldry.
