I LOVE THIS MOVIE

A weepy conclusion:




Billy's dad holds back his tears. Michael's face, fills with joy and pride for his friend.

This movie gets me every time.

    1. It's okay for guys to get weepy. WDW does sometimes.

  3. Mrs. Shady would love this movie and I will tell her about it and watch it with her. Meanwhile, we are working our way through Last Tango in Halifax and loving it.

    Have a wonderful week, dear Janie Junebug!

  4. Wouldn't you know - I've never seen this movie. But I do love to watch ballet. So sorry.

    1. The movie doesn't have a great deal of ballet--it's just at the end and when Billy starts to learn to dance. I think the young man who played Billy is more of a tap dancer.

  5. The movie Stand By Me gets me every time. I cried like a baby the first time I saw it, to the point my mom had to calm me down because it got to the point where I was hyperventilating.

    1. When you cry, if you take slow deep breaths it makes you stop.

  6. I have not seen this movie. Maybe movies are what I can do while I'm out of work for the next 4-6 weeks... maybe. :)

    1. I still don't know what happened to you. Maybe I'll find out when I read posts. If not, then you'd better let me know what's up.

  9. There's nothing sweeter than a gorgeous dancer, even if his name isn't Billy Elliot.

    I love this movie, too!

    1. I hear Shady is quite the jitterbugger.

  10. I might have to buy this one. Blue collar dad goes from very unsupportive to teary, as I recall. It's been a while. I'll Netflix it AGAIN to refresh my memory.

  11. Never seen it. It's one of the rare movies that a lot of people talk about that hasn't interested me at all.

  14. You do love your movies, Janie....I have trouble keeping up with all your reviews! ;-) I don't know the story behind this one, so need to read up on it. Love the dance.

    1. I can watch a movie just for fun, but I'm interested in film as an art form.
