Billy Elliot is an Oscar nominated film that is one of the best movies of 2000 for sure. It's a story about a boy in Ireland that gives up boxing lessons and secretly attend ballet lesson because that's his passion, although it's not what his father approves. The story is touching and the acting is top notch, despite there isn't a big actor in this movie. This movie spun off a musical that won the Tony so the storyline transcends the medium. Excellent movie.
