4. Billy Elliot

I absolutely love this movie.

I still think it was Jamie Bell’s best role.

It deals so well with gender stereotypes.

Billy wants to do ballet, but his father thinks it makes his son a sissy.

Even now, certain stereotypes abound when boys dance ballet.

They don’t all come from working class miners trying to deal with being a single parent without work, either.
