This week: Billy Elliot and The Full Monty
It’s all about Brits doing what Brits do best: uplifting themselves and everyone around them with heartwarming stories of the struggle out of adversity.

Movie 1:
Billy Elliot
M (violence, language)
Genre: Comedy/ Drama
Movie Length : 1:50

Starring: Julie Walters, Jamie Bell
Director: Stephen Daldry

“It’s as raw a slice of escapism as you could wish for” The Independent (UK)

“Take a twirl with Billy and you won’t be disappointed” The Australian.

Synopsis
The life of 11-year-old Billy Elliot, a coal miner's son in Northern England, is forever changed one day when he stumbles upon a ballet class during his weekly boxing lesson. Before long, he finds himself in dance, demonstrating the kind of raw talent seldom seen by the class exacting instructor, Mrs Wilkinson. With a tart tongue and a never-ending stream of cigarettes in her hand, Mrs Wilkinson's zest for teaching is revived when she sees Billy's potential.

Movie 2:
The Full Monty
M (language)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Movie Length1:31

Starring: Robert Carlyle, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Addy
Director: Peter Cattaneo

“Mark Addy, Tom Wilkinson, Steve Huison, Paul Barber and Hugo Speer all get their moments in the spotlight and grab them – to unforgettable effect.” Stuff.co.nz

“The Full Monty finds both pathos and laughs in its farfetched conceit, avoiding the pitfalls of sappiness and shtik. Odds are good you'll exit grinning.” Newsweek

Synopsis
After losing his job at a steel factory, Gaz (Robert Carlyle) learns that his wife wants to sue him for missed child support payments. Desperate for money, Gaz and his friend Dave (Mark Addy) decide to create their own male strip-tease act. The two friends recruit four more men, including their former foreman (Tom Wilkinson) and a security guard (Steve Huison). The group promises that their show will succeed because they are willing to go "the Full Monty": completely naked.
