Wonderful. Wonderful. Wonderful. Just as The Full Monty swept through America, so has Billy Elliot. And it’s even better than The Full Monty. Billy Elliot is the kind of film that makes you truly melt inside. Brush your cynicism aside and embrace this film for the purity of heart that it strives to have. If this film doesn’t get to you, you should check your pulse.
My rating: *****: Worth standing in line
