'billy elliot' the movie

We were delving through the Comcast OnDemand list last night, looking for a free movie to watch, and happened upon Billy Elliot, the 2001 movie that the Elton John Broadway musical Billy Elliot was based on.  A cool movie! Makes me want to see the musical next time it hits the Twin Cities (next fall at the Ordway, I think).

One thing you'll notice if you watch the movie:  English is a very diverse language.  When these characters speak in their northern-England dialect, there will be times when you think you're watching a foreign language film without subtitles.  You'll get the drift of it, though.
