Critic Reviews of "Billy Elliot"New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Real and consequential.ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000
Neither revolutionary in its approach or subject matter nor seamless in its storytelling, Billy Elliot nevertheless manages to sketch the lives of characters we come to care about.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
Julie Walters ... is spirited and colorful as the ballet teacher, and Gary Lewis is somehow convincing as the dad even when the screenplay requires him to make big offscreen swings of position.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
The unvarnished, non-enhanced spectacle of a human being executing a display of physical prowess will always have the power to astonish, and the young Mr. Bell proves this very nicely.Film.comJanuary 01, 2000
Billy Elliot is a feel-good movie that you don't have to feel bad about feeling good about.Boston GlobeJanuary 01, 2000
The best dance film in ages.Common Sense MediaDecember 22, 2010
Terrific story of young ballet dancer has strong language.Suite101.comSeptember 25, 2010
The film about atypical artistic pursuits in a blue-collar community that "The Full Monty" sought to be. Peter Darling's choreography dexterously captures the defiance in the dancing - rage against economical and emotional repression in a motherless home.TheMovieReport.comOctober 14, 2007
When sticking with Billy and his inspirational story, director Stephen Daldry hits all the right steps.Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)June 10, 2003
Daldry coaches an astonishing performance from Bell.Kalamazoo GazetteJune 15, 2002
The story is familiar, to be sure, but director Stephen Daldry and writer Lee Hall tell it so persuasively it's irresistible, and the movie's score of vintage T. Rex classics could do for glam-rock what "The Full Monty" did for disco.eFilmCritic.comApril 19, 2002
Billy Elliot earns every one of its sentiments and emotions without getting overly manipulative or preachy
