More Info:
  • Bob Graham

    People who see it may feel like dancing out of the theater afterward. Go for it.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • David Rooney

    Strikes a delicate balance of comedy and pathos with an uplifting final act that delivers a resoundingly satisfying emotional payoff.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    It's not just a movie about an underdog who fights the odds, it's about following one's heart -- despite the obstacles.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    You'd be hard-pressed to find a purer expression of rapture in a film this year than the one that opens Billy Elliot.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Best of all, Billy (Jamie Bell) is that rarity in a film distributed by Hollywood: a real boy, confused at 11 about almost everything.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    An exhilarating, funny and deeply sad story of growing pains that works on two levels; it's a feel-good story that quietly undermines the notion of gain without loss.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Mary Elizabeth Williams

    A surprisingly wise and funny meditation on the nature of what it truly means to be a man.

    Salon.com Full Review
  • Leslie Camhi

    By setting this intimate conflict against a wider social drama, Daldry makes his portrait of a dancer all the more compelling.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Bill Gallo

    Can be as howlingly funny as it is touching.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Robert Horton

    Director Stephen Daldry gets it right.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Peter Brunette

    You'll feel moved and uplifted after watching this well-written, funny movie.

    Film.com Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Anchors its melodramatic formula in tough, heartfelt realism.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    A delicate balance of fantasy and realism, caricature and character study that isn't driven primarily by its plot or even the development of its protagonist.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    As much parable and fantasy as it is realistic.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Trumpets the worthwhile message that ballet is just as manly and athletic as any other masculine activity - and maybe a touch more so, if you have to defy an uncomprehending community in order to pursue it.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Good, colorful fun, and by virtue of its emphasis on escape through individual initiative rather than class solidarity, more likely to succeed with American audience.s

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Even as the director, Stephen Daldry, places his star front and center, he doesn't know how to highlight him.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    In its determination to overdo sure-fire material, Billy Elliot becomes as impossible to wholeheartedly embrace as it is to completely reject.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    There's too much miserable reality and not a lot of transcendent dance, and the director, Stephen Daldry, doesn't cover the action from enough angles.

    Slate Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    There's actually a lot going on in this little movie, and first-time feature director Stephen Daldry, turning his talents from the theater, handles all of it deftly.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    It orders you to love it. It demands love, which is the best way not to get it.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    An exquisite, ecstatic film, crude in its characterizations and plotting, yes, but extraordinary in its capacity for elation and its hard-earned sentimentality.
