Quite simply, this is a masterpiece. Excellent script, superb acting and a combination of other factors make this one of the most moving films ever. Not perfect in every sense, but the slight shortcomings are easy to forgive. Jamie Bell is truly amazing as Billy Elliot, and it is his acting and low-key charisma more than anything else that make this film such a piece of magic that it is.
