Any sensible person will have loved the original film, but with music by Elton John, the stage musical captured here, is phenomenal. If you don't laugh, check your pulse. If you don't get tearful, you must be dead inside. Imagine, the phenomenally talented lead, Elliott Hanna, is 11, and on stage for 3 hours, singing, dancing and acting ( acting better than most recent Oscar winners ). It deals with the politics of a dying mining village, a kid struggling to become what he wants to be, coming to terms with his dead mother, a father and brother obsessed with the Strike, a nutty Granny, a cross-dressing pal, and really not wanting to learn boxing. A huge hit around the world, the DVD has a special finale with over 30 of the boys and men who have played the part of Billy over the years.
I have had more joy and pleasure from this one DVD than from all of the others I've bought this year, added together
