"billy elliot" Discussed on The Culture Quest

"So today. We're discussing billy elliot. A british movie from the year. Two thousand directed by stephen daldry starring. Jamie bell is billy elliot. The movie is set in nineteen eighty-four. Billy is the son of a coalminer. He and his family his family living in everington a little coal miners. Down during the nineteen eighty-four coal miners strike by skiff. Fifteen minutes news. If you wanna get so. Billy is a young kind of average teenager. He doesn't seem to be too popular or anything and he's comically bad boxing and one day. He finds himself kind of joining ballet lesson. He didn't mean to take part in. La and ballet. Billy well he's not too good at it or anything. He decides to come back the next week instead of going to boxing class and after a class or to the ballet class teacher mrs wilkinson i think was her name. She says potential in billy and she encourages him to keep coming to ballet and she's thinking about signing him additions to the royal ballet school and obviously that plan is cut short when bill is dad. Who's who's under the pressure of trying to run the family without his wife who who's best away the last year and he's also on strike from his combing mining job and he had some point finds out that bill is been missing his boxing classes. He goes to checking on billy and finds him dancing ballet and obviously he doesn't ticket to well his not that kind of progressive kind of guy and he loses his mind. He bands build from dancing. And mrs wilkinson she she like. I said she sees a lot of potential in billy so she decides to give billy private lessons and to take him to the addition herself and obviously throughout the movie. The strike is getting worse. The pressure on bill is families getting harder and harder to deal with Billy's older brother. Tony he becomes kind of one of the more extreme activists and he gets in trouble. Which makes billy mris addition and throughout the movie. Billy's training for the addition he discovers his best friend. Michael is in the closet. And that even mrs wilkinson or the wilkinson family. They have their own problems even though these seemed to have this perfect life and then his dad discovers it has been Dancing behind his back but instead of losing his mind he recognizes billy's talents this time he he actually changes his mind. He makes sure that bill is going back to dancing and against all he stands for goes back to work even though the strike is still on just to be able to fund bill trip to the audition in london and suddenly bill is family and it seems like the whole town is supporting of bilas dream of becoming a ballet dancer. I'll not go go over the ending though. I'm sure we'll mentioned it in a bit so as usual guys. Let's start with our general thoughts. What you guys think of the movie. How was the experience of watching. Billy elliot for you So this movie by yeah it was Because obviously i didn't. I guess before i watched i didn't really know it was sitting on a four because i just all that i knew it was came out in two thousand and i thought wow this looks like a really old film for two thousand like aged poli but i guess like hasn't it just it was set. You know fifteen years prior And honestly i fist hof maybe fifth to a half okay. I thought the acting was very good and the story was okay. But i didn't really feel i had any agency to to the film and then it kind of had a bit of a slow third in the middle and then i guess maybe just the lost hof like picked up for me and there was sort of like obviously the change Billy's dad just essentially changed his mind Ability the dance in the What would you coach gymnasium. Because before that he was like really drunk and i was like. Oh this isn't gonna guy. Well this is where he goes to jail or something like that. And then just changed course and i did not say that most movies. You kind of guess where it's going like for better or worse you know what i mean but this one i did not say coming. I thought why one of the better twist it wasn't like a monitoring say the twists but it's not like somebody's way The twist like sutton like shutter island door this six cents or something like that. It's just this was more of just a change in direction of film and it was just so good and yeah i honestly on the hallway actually really enjoyed it. It was just like just took me the fist hour to really get into it. And the acting is superb. I'm not sure if you guys now but the person who plays musicians. And she's molly weasley in harry potter s psycho is. Yeah oh recognize her yen. Then kind of bari. Right now when someone told me that that was the coin like it collects. She's got a genuine reaction while she was great once said that i sit entire movie differently. Same here what did you think of the movie. Bio i liked it. I liked it It's a different paced movie. No it's it's from a while back and still still holds up and the acting is definitely a one of the of the main things here. The actor that played bella jamie bell. Yeah like i never actually thought that a kid can can act that. Well we was amazing. Yeah good job but but the father and and miss fan me. Spotter miss There were both really. Yeah like i guess you know. The whole acting was to be very introverted people but that worked because in the sense that they had like emotional things where where everything kinda like bobbled the surface. It was very noticeable that they did They did a good job. I agree with you. Pick the the change in the the twist where his father like appreciates his skills. It's it's it was a bit out of the blue really. Yeah i don't know it's it's kinda like i'm not sure if it was like you know. Imagine imagine that you have very strong negative feelings about that kind of thing. It adjusts caught your kid with another kid with a two two in the gym. And they're just fooling around and even though like you're seeing that your kid can dance like it's really like two steps forward thinking saying okay now in a position where i can actually appreciate what i'm seeing so that was a bit of a of a weird move. Yeah it is. It is a bit of a leap to tell in terms of Hot intended. But i just kind of imagined him you know he was so concentrated on the strike and on keeping his family going like they were in such a bad situation in terms of everything..

"Yeah. We'll mentioned a bunch of songs this. This one was one. You signed up for a long time ago. You wanted to be my co-host for this episode. Obviously your big bruce springsteen fan <hes> did you. Did you ever expect for <hes> this to be the bruce springsteen movie though it was going to happen. Did i expect for it no but there's so many kind of books about bruce springsteen springsteen and how he's affected. People's lives documentaries that that it doesn't surprise me that you know this. This one happens to be about a pakistani imigran grin in working class england in the eighties and that's the that to bruce spoke to you know yeah sure. Why not you know that's that's the point of his music is that it speaks to so many people no matter what background you have just yearning for for more for something more yeah those universal like themes of his music or exactly what the movie is a vow and and i find it we'll get into as we get into some of the puzzle pieces and everything but the movie is about so much more than just you know bruce springsteen's as music i mean it absolutely can be read just about the music and then it could be just about him as a writer in connecting with other writers and it could be about you know one thing i noticed before even get into puzzle pieces. I'm looking at my pieces and i'm realizing i didn't even like touch on like the themes of racism in the country and how that parallels today and everything started there is that is one of the interesting things about men. How spot on is this movie from. That was you you know in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. What's going on today in america britain you so that's a sad state of affairs cheryl's. The more things change the more they stay the same now i was looking. I didn't put it as one of my puzzle pieces but something like this is england which goes over the schism of the skinhead music ah movement from like hey we're cool reggae guys to hey we're horrible nazis that that would have been a movie that would fit in that puzzle puzzle piece is sure absolutely well. Why don't we jump in some puzzle pieces. What do you got for your first one so look. There's a number of ways. I broke this down. <hes> <hes> one one thing i wanted to leave out where these jukebox musicals that are like super trendy right now but you mean rhapsody yesterday stuff like that where it's just like. Here's a story of an artist and we're back rounding it or most of the story through their music with them. Singing i may mention in a couple the only for specific reasons okay that's fair. I left those out because this isn't a story about bruce springsteen because i know that the the film maker who i'm gonna let you pronounce yeah gun render chadha. I don't know if you did it anyway. She specifically typically said like look. We're not trying to make that we're trying to make a story and we're going to have the music <hes> elevate story showing so with that. I had a movie british movie about a young fella who's trying to do better who also involves loves music and billy elliot one of my favorite films of all time. I love this movie. I'll cry at it every single time. Oh you're you're you're dead. Mom wrote you a note. Let's read it out loud so jason cried whoever's watching but you know that's the story of again a working class family dad.

An Interview with Jamie Bell of 'Skin'

"His popcorn where I tell you what's happening at the movies and I'm going to tell you about a movie called skin. Today you already know about a movie called rocket man. They both starred my guest Jamie Bow. I don't know when you have time your new father again. GotTa hang out with your kid true. <hes> I'm not working right now. Okay so it's all good. It's all good now. We can see by this with skin in the poster and this is a true story. I knew nothing about the story you know when I whenever the script the first time time you know as a movie that <hes> <hes> with with everything that was going on the news it was quite an century was a movie that felt very urgent yeah exactly and I felt like it. It Sean a light on something that <hes> I think ordinarily we could choose to ignore and I think any kind of normalization of this is dangerous. <hes> there's obviously a redemptive element to this and no as the phone kind of tying things up in a nice boat because life isn't like that right but we'll tell us a little bit though for those people that don't that you're playing somebody who decides basically the PAT. He took as a white supremacist is not the way he should go and how basically you get rid of that. I really love how literally he tries to get rid of that ink that stuff on his. Let's get to do it but it's a way to dramatize what he's doing what he's ripping off. I mean like the Brian wine was a career <hes> Neo Nazi that worries when when we first meet him he's completely linked up from that to <hes> and he's the way the journey the characters very much one of an unconscious man who comes to an awakening <hes> <hes> he he realizes the choices he has made a bad ones. He meets this woman who changes his life forever. She has these beautiful goes. He becomes obsessed with and he tries to get himself fat which for a lot of people who try and do that has a lot of very grave consequences but it's difficult. I think for these people to leave the ideology so strong <hes> there's almost kind of <hes> this <hes> almost an addictive quality to to to the to the families that they're in into these groups that are in most of these people are very very wayward within get involved with this <hes>. Suddenly you belong should they have. They have a <hes>. They feel like that. There's a pat on the back and there's a kind of a good job. <hes> <hes> said by somebody so <hes> yeah this. Is this the real hero the stories this guy called Daryl Lamont Jenkins. He worked for the one people's project. He is literally the people out in the street opposing these people and he can spot the good in some of these people in with an amazing sense of compassion reach out to them and and and say you know I can get you out of this if you're willing and he does US and through two years of Surgery Brian is given a gift. It's all removed from his face and and he has the potential to change his life and start again. Well we watch the movie and we can by watching the movie and watching your performance and watching how it's done put ourselves in that position kid but it's hard in the beginning with it hard for you when they said. Would you play this guy he I think so I was kind of a kind of moral see-saw for me. I like the first time I talked to the real. Brian was the dish Charlottesville for example. I remember ending that conversation with him and calling the director immediately after thinking <hes>. I don't think this is a good idea. I think this is some uh-huh feels the wrong time to tell the story <hes> also filmmaker by the way is Israeli filmmaker <hes> <hes> his yeah exactly his family went through the atrocities of the Holocaust. I'm so for him to want to tell the story and have that unique sense of compassionate <hes> that extension of kindness. I thought it was quite interesting. <hes> uh-huh and again you know when I would walk around <hes> the small town of Kingston was shot this film it would have been covered in tattoos and human nature is to usually ignore the monster next they don't. WanNa look at things that are challenging in any way or scary yeah. They look and I feel like that if we do that as a culture that's dangerous because we can radically normalize. These kinds of people and I think that's very dangerous so hopefully this film. If nothing else is going to wake up call we don't see him in a really good light in the beginning. No no no no and we're basically seeing somebody where you do. WanNa look away not just because of the tattoos you WanNa look away because you're thinking this is reprehensible bowl. What's your he's a character. In initially who is completely detached from <hes> empathy he's detached from compassionate and love from kindness <hes> he's. He's literally I think he's Com- completely lost touch with his ideology even means he's in a drunken stupor most of the time <hes> and he's he's indoctrinated by these people. I mean the the ideology that this group follow is based in kind of Viking Odin mythology which is about bloodlines and just complete nonsense so <hes> sure it was about that character finding something in this <hes> Julie Character Daniel McDonald placed finding some sense of stability and finding that there are these chasms of empathy Kathy that he has and tenderness and <hes> and suddenly that coming to the surface is a family that is kind of ready made for him knocked his family and he begins to see a bigger world through them and she's really good. She's an incredible downtown yeah yeah. That's quite remarkable. You see that through this movie I mean the performances are all spectacular that people are giving especially when you see veer for Migo Goer Bill camp or people play that people you really don't yeah I mean I gotta say especially with some like very much of that was kind of unscripted and she really just turned up and we didn't have much prep time with her at all and she just came in doing this wonderful. Three dimensional fully realized character that was really a scary to all of us the places she was phenomenal whenever I felt like literally terrified and I was meant to be the one that was scary which is great eight but it was it was a hardship I think for all of us. We all knew what was in the headlines. We all knew the kind of will that we were living in and and now important this was to portray these people the way they are and I think what about this menu playing. What was your relationship with him complicated <hes> purely because of the things he's done you know I i.? I'm someone who finds forgiveness quite difficult to come by. You know <hes>. I really liked to hold people accountable for their actions. <HES> I go meet with them. He's in the witness protection program and I spent like a week just kind of chatting to him and mostly talking about <hes> with them about stuff that wasn't in the script his childhood and <hes> you know <hes> what it's early life was like <hes> he's the other thing about him as if if you didn't know that he wants look like that. I mean ee you would have no idea that he was once covered in from I mean he has been given a gift. He's been given a new lease on life but he's an extremely paranoid person. He lives in constant fear. He's he lives in constant reckoning and that that's what he has to atone for for the things. He's <hes> things he's done. The great thing that you literally do and that we see in this is that we see somebody removed food than ink and then we wonder that gone you could take it away goes but what has to come away has to come from here and from here as well. That's only proven through action. That's only proven to <hes> but I think certainly right now. I think it's worthwhile question to ask how much compassionate we have and how far does that go and in the hope and this movie for me is that there really is <hes> the kindness of strangers people like. Dr Lamont Jenkins who might call to pleasants phone is solely responsible for getting mad at this movement you know <hes> the the money and the funds that were provided for surgery provided by an anonymous donor <hes> you know if anything that's the hope of the the move me is that there are there are human beings out there willing to extend this compassion and to say I'll. I'll extend myself if you do but you do that as an actor right when you're putting on somebody's skin no matter what part you're playing whether there's any disguise into what do what made you do this. I mean I know Billy Elliot. It is the beginning and Billy Elliot is a lot like you yeah well. He that movie exactly like me yeah. I mean anything. All of this show the old. You said yes sure it was a time when a film set for me that movie <hes> I remember being very overwhelming like God circus really did come to town and now the cameras pointing at me and this is very extreme and just really trusting got like I had no idea what I was doing this film and the decision to make this <hes> was one about really challenging myself and seeing <hes>. Is it possible to completely transform myself to degree. I'd never done before for <hes> and it was still challenging. Thing that is one of the most challenging things for me was was not holding the character in any form of judgement. That's what they always say like. ECON judge yes you difficult the circumstances of course <hes> it was important that I met him and introduced myself and everything else but then also just that that level of detachment that the character has and the reason I bring up Billy Elliot in addition to being such a seminal thing for you and what was happening to you is that you're bringing brought. Brought up this way you you've got a sister who's a dancer. You know this is. This is so much like you and yet. There's all these cameras around. I'm sure you're saying what what what my way through that movie for the first time you know but I think also me. I'd never met my father before <hes> the relationship that billy has with his father in that film is very challenging. Certainly this is a character who certainly lacked male presents a male role model and that guidance and that leadership that is looking for Elton John when he saw Billy Elliot and Ken wept he was weeping when I met him when supposedly easy in the movie version before he writes the kid when you're a kid yes exactly he's weeping. He's weeping because he his own a father <hes> he's he's passed but <hes> <hes> as if you've seen we have very good relations with his own sexuality and everything else and I think the most heartbreaking thing for him was that he never showed up to one of the show's not one so I think when Billy's father tons up into that film and tons up for his son and ED performing with the Royal Ballet School I think that really destroyed him but you know that the looking up to people in having examples and they're so crucial crucial is so important you know <hes> in this instance maybe Brian his life would have done it differently. What happens now after you meet l.. Well John Again and you're playing burnt-out movie. It's like really weird. I don't know what the next connection is very strange because obviously did the musical <hes>. Lee Hall who wrote wrote the musical euro rocket man. There's a kind of cosmic tethers to this <music> <hes> and I love that as top in it which is again antithesis to this character is such a loving supportive accepting human being and such a loyal oil friend <hes> it was really nice after doing this which is quite an unpleasant experience <hes> <hes> to play a character like that. That was just someone who so I'm lovely. So is that made you have years and years of therapy are have you been living sort of relatively normal life. I mean I would. I hope relatively normal. It seems relatively normal to me. <hes> you know I mean I think it's all relative experience but I think you know works for me is a real form of therapy. Get to play some characters from lots of different places in different walks of life and <hes> <hes> that to me is very interesting. I get to meet all the people that I'm playing most of the time with US revolutionary <hes> he's he's long since passed. Even people P turn. I did a phone call. Film Stars don't die in Liverpool with Annette Benning. He was around. He was extremely useful. Extremely love the guy to hang out with.

A Sneak Peak of Elton John's 'Rocketman'

"A sneak peek of rocket man, which opens visit open tomorrow or next weekend next next weekend. If you could double check that anyway, rocket man, we can say, jukebox movies are here. Bohemian rhapsody turned out to be the bellwether. Ding, ding, ding, money it made. And we get racket man, which is the Elton John. Jukebox Moos movie. But it is. It was so good. You guys. It's tomorrow. Okay. Fun was so good. And you know what I think the thing I took away. You know, John is a fifty year career. And you we he's kind of under appreciate how much of the soundtrack of everybody's life says, like for a lot of younger people, they didn't know who Elton John was really until Princess Diana died, and they hurt his candle in the wind song. But the Terron Eggerton is the, the actual plays Elton John. He's basically I agree with Rolling Stone magazine. Peter Travers said that Taron Egerton is the lady Gaga and the bread, the Cooper roll together all in one in this movie allow. Because you see Elton. We see him as a child prodigy. We see them young and we don't realize all the music that we hear the stories kind of told through song. Okay. But all the music that we hear his most famous hits were written, like in the span of about seven years, and he went from just being as Donnie told Chester day like this session piano, because he was like, really a great musician. He meets Bernie topping who's not a romantic relationship. They're dear friends played. Amazingly gorgeous leave. Well by Jamie bell, the little boy from Billy Elliot Bernie Taupin, and then but tyranny Agar ten is just he's flamboyant. He's hard he sweet in the we've talked about Tate. Donovan is in it. He plays the charismatic longtime manager manager and owner of the troubadour. And as always scouting England to bring axe to the tuber door to show off to the Hollywood kids, how interesting it costs to me, much like in bohemian, rhapsody, the custom designer recreates, because at the end of the movie stay for the credits because they show side by side of Taron Eggerton. Like, in the first outfit, he wore at the troubadour would Elton war Madison Square Garden, this performance they show side by side. But. It was it was how unappreciated Elton John is for like, what he's done like his. There wasn't a drug. He didn't do there wasn't a kind of decadent hedonism. He still loves to shop. That's like really his only basically doing all those drugs and surviving, but yeah, kind of kind of them. What he's also done in how immensely talented Elton John and Bernie, top and were together as songwriters Bernie top. And he's the lyricist. And then L Tim would come up with the metal melody in top would just give him Lear s and he would hear it in his ears. And I know you don't like the song crocodile rock, but that is the song that blasted him into the stratosphere in the US. And I guess the way they show it in the movie. When you see it, and how it starts, and how radically different. It was from anything. That was on the radio. You can't help but fall in love with that song again, for when you remember the first time you heard that opening chord. And at first people were just like, who is this weird looking English guy with the wacky outfit? He had suspenders on and like a star shirt. It was like nineteen seventy two and these wacky glasses. But, you know, just starts out kind of this melodic piano thing. And then all of a sudden it crashes into this amazing kind of rock song, about remember when you're young and just getting in trouble and causing, you know, having so much fun and the crowd just went nuts. And it was it was just really, really good. I think are going to enjoy it, Danny you should play because he's on the phone. He's talking to him probably about, like they saw John in nineteen seventy. Somebody about nineteen seventy actually the trooper. Okay. Was that the Kazini came out with the album that I think we sat transfixed a your family. Which later was the double album and every son had headed different font in a different color. And we'd sit there and my sister, Gina got it. And we'd just sit there and read and sing. Yeah. I think, you know, I think there's like a dozen songs that we hear in the movie, and the movies kind of told through those songs. But his it go from just the seventies or is it a collective of his life to now? Well, it, it ends at a certain point. And then it has, like it ends at a certain point in his life. And then it has, you know, it gives you an update on what's going on. But it gives you. Yeah, it probably gives you like maybe twenty bright Bryce Dallas. Howard is his mom. And she was just really awful. Remember, I told you this story? They weren't talking on her ninetieth birthday. Yes. I'm she didn't Elton John impersonators birthday party. She told him we, you know, she knew he was gay, but she was very dismissive of him being gay, and basically, always, let him know he'd never really beloved which was the source of a lot of his pain, and, oh, my gosh. Is there a hot you guys wolf wolf wolf? We Kellyanne t there is an amazingly, great hot sex scene, a yeah, I wanted to just go go down lower camera pan down. It was it was, it was steaming at Elton John and the guy who kind it will become his manager, who thinks he's in. They are in love, but he's played by Richard man, rod stark in the guy from bodyguards. Yes. And the seventies fashion is just everything. And you really do see some decadence and I dunno. It was he loved it. I just I, I loved it and, and reginal Dwight you know, had a bleak, childhood. I heard his dad was a piece of work. Oh my God. Who's reginal white bright, his Elton John's ain't? Yeah. Yes. Okay. God. When we yeah, that was his real name, John, John comes from a Long, John Baldry blues musician, read a lot of influence on him and the other Elton comes from his friend Elton. Dean, dean. Yeah. And you see that in the movie he says, I'm taking

And she's like, look, you're great at your job. But this guest booking thing. Oh, well, you know, what Alison is great. If guest booking. Mike was terrible added before. And he was the most terrible guts is great at it. Mike was terrible at it. But no, we got a new most terrible at it. And it's meek Billy. Yeah. Billy's never been any good at it. Billy Elliot's afraid to ask for anything. It is literally the one job you cannot take. No for an answer. Billy has no issue digging. No hanso, remember, the time the single expert. All yeah, you're back. Did you make them a rapper? Meek bill. So we will have the restaurant reservation for you in a little bit here. But what did you think of its to God's because I've never seen you quite like that you were throwing temper tantrums yesterday you wanted that sound cleared because you thought it was funny. And you you love the laugh to the jazz hand you wanted you done something that was funny, and nobody wants to do good work and have it put in a drawer. But Mike wasn't as good as gods thought. It was because I've never seen him fight for anything that way may wanna temporary. This thing has been hyped up to a point that we've never hide any these up. I mean, this was a very difficult place to get into obviously was very difficult sound to clear it's the day after Valentine's. So it's not very timely. So maybe it's worth your time. Who knows okay? So thank you for tamp down those those expectations reservation is in about ten minutes. Yep. Having time to think about it for a couple of days. It was awful. Yeah. Okay. It's me. Yeah. Okay. It's me in ten minutes. And it's man. Gabar. You know, what's not man? I saw this last night on Netflix. And it's bad bleep. Crazy. It is bat bleep crazy a documentary called a -ducted in plain sight. I watched it. And I was like you've got to be kidding me that this is something that happened in America. And somebody seems to have gotten away with that happening in America. What's it about? So the name of the movie it's documentary ab- -ducted in plain sight, again, what did about we're rooting that? It's the story of Billy going off with Jose Canseco in an RV. What Billy why had an actual conversation with someone yesterday where I said, there's no way. This does not involve the people being blindfolded and missing people at the end of this. But if I go on this, and I die it'll be a great store. Right. I mean, it'll be a great story in theory because it will really end probably with me and like a little tiny motel having my organs harvested, but people think that I was out looking for aliens. Well, no, people will think that you were either abducted by aliens or killed by Bigfoot or can say go any of them any of them work for the purposes of the show you killed by any of those things is something we can do something with. But when they say a big foot that makes it seem like there's more than one, right, especially if there's a habitat, so they're all the air. You know, there's a very real risk that you'll get their considerable drive. You some there somewhere and show you his big foot? Like don't think that that might not happen..

"I to say that at accent. Right. I'm like picking up their words. And so I feel like this kid is trying to be nice to him. And he's like oh gays. You know, like fights. And it's just very like a manly world that he goes into this rich posh world, and they're all like stuck up and like a clean because belly classes, not cheap. No, you know. And so you know, like you're taking that class. You come from a family that has the money to pay for that. Right. Just like his like, you said his dad was going to break the strike to just to pay for it because it's pretty expensive and think that was a conversation with his does like how much is this gonna cost and he was like upset about it. Right. Yeah. And he was upset about it. But he didn't wanna take handouts. Yeah. He didn't want except like from the ballet teacher who going to help Billy like potentially go to the rule of LA school. Like, I don't want your hand out. I don't want eighty cherish. She's like that's not what it is. But he like is said that he's not going to. So they work to pay. And there's a moment also like mid nineties is with his brother where you see some tenderness and care that also happens in this, which is his sw. But I would say between both films. They have similarity where like the mother figure is either not there physically or at times. Like, maybe not there fully caring in a way. And you see that in both. And sort of like a sense of. Like, I don't know like absence of like, a parental figure a little bit not understanding of what's going on. Or what their kid is doing sort of in a sense of like, oh, you're acting up and not really shiny new y of what's going on. Also, you get to see the brother have a moment of understanding and of love and they're not fully villain. You know, you don't get them throughout the film, and you kind of feel some pity for them res- well in both and there's kind of like funding acceptance either of yourself or within friends, and also I would say there is a scene in mid nineties where there's an acceptance of the skaters where the mom feels some acceptance of who they are for for her son to be hanging out with them a little bit. Yeah. And so I like you see some of that and like fitting in finding people who support you, and I also say in Billy Elliot his way of letting out his frustrations through dance. And as maybe I want to say that in mid nineties. It's letting it out through skating say he's not really good enough for that happened or which I feel bad. I keep saying that this film lease Ryan, hey, Ryan so small, but I think they're editors in mid nineties with the just kinda, you know. Screw it. Kind of attitude by seven. Yeah. That's how he's going to get it out. Yano is not like the best skater. Like, you're gonna get it out and doing this like stuff that you don't care begin troubles. Right. And there is yes. So I would say there's like how you let out your frustration in mid nineties. You'll see what I mean when I when you watch it. But there's like letting out your anger, you kind of that in a lot of all of the skaters, right? Oh, also, I wanna mention I did not mention this Embiid nineties, there is the character fourth grade is filming a skate video and you like do like the whole film. He's filming this and you're like what's going on? And you do actually see the video at the end. So stay for that. Okay. He his skate video which is funny, and it's escape video good. So K video from the nineties. Oh, yeah. It's cute. I would say see both these films. Billy Elliott to me. I had seen as a child and my dad really likes the film. It's like kind of like a classic in my mind and heart, and I'm sure it'd make a great play probably go see that as well..

"Welcome back to the movie podcast. We are ending our show by talking about Billy Elliot, and one of the things that I want to mention about this that I feel like this definitely theme is the idea of who mentioned it in mid nineties stadium. Acceptance by your family from your family, but also in this story more than mid nineties is the acceptance of yourself cut like there's a point win Billy knows that he wants to be a dancer, but he's fighting against the image of it and fighting some of his desire to obey his family and to not let them down right while he can't really contain some of his dancing energy secretary. His creativity comes about it though. He's all about it. When he's dancing like this is me, right? When when he starts dancing can't really stop taking lessons. Like just the way. He walks is, Dan. Oh, yeah. It is father's stopped formally. Why do you have to get around? But yeah, it definitely shows that in the film like you can tell that. He's just you know, once he's in his own. He's there for sure, and there's a lot of sort of similar to how mid-nineties there's the theme of poverty like in class. There's definitely that going on in this because ballet can be very posh world and his family does not come from that their coal miners and their coal miners. Yeah. And so they're on strike. So there he's father into brother aren't even working. So they're very poor. And that is also very evident in this, and you feel really bad for his father because his father wants to provide for his family, but they're trying to fight for better, wages and better working conditions. So they're trying to go on strike, and he's like this heartbreaking scene when his father is going to break strike to pay for Billy to go to belly school. Yeah. And it's so sad. And you kinda hate his brother in this because both nineties and Bill Elliott have like the sort of others of brother. Yeah. I would say. Bill Elliott, his brother's not abusive. He's a bully air believe though, verbally true. He's like verbally just like not nicest brother, he puts his brother on so much under so much stress really saying like you can't be a ballet dancer, right? Like, you're gay. You know, like you can't do that. And that also comes up in the film as well. There's sort of this vibe of like like sexual like homosexual vibes then kind of into being accepted as well. Yeah. And there's like some tension of that. Because Billy Elliott it's kind of like, I don't want to be seceded with that. But I love Danny dancing. And so whatever comes with that, you know, he kind of like, I'm just going to whatever I'm going to do it. Anyway. But there's some tension with that was that I was gonna say is that the locker seen after the with. There's there's a couple of scenes like that. There's like some kid is basically being nice to him. Yeah. And he's like get up and he like like fight him. Yeah. Feel like some of that from like it makes much when you see the world that Billy comes from which is very like don't put on Hanley like Manley. Like don't be a wimp says like the British don't be a puff. There's so many like so localisms in this film that I just thought were hilarious. I wanna be Britain. Watch this movie. I like I would like pause it. And then I would say a roommate and I liked it..

"It is set in northeast England during like nine hundred eighty four nine hundred eighty five like a coal miner strike Bill. Elliott's dad is a coal miner. And so is his brother the film stars, Jamie bell who is the eleven year old Billy, and he is sort of like an aspiring dancer, but he's fighting the negative stereotype of being a male, ballet dancer, and he's fighting the stereotype a lot because his father is a coal miner. His brother is a coal miner. And it's kind of a bully, and those are just like very like masculine thing. Yes. Like his mother has passed away. Way. So it's just the two males in the household. And just like how they're like. You can't be a ballot, right? No. There's no way boxing. Yeah. Exactly. And he has a ballet teacher who is tough. But she cares about him. And the film was released September two thousand and then it became a West End stage show called billion the musical two thousand and five and then it opened in Australia two thousand seven also as stage performance. Oh. And then it went on Broadway two thousand eight so it's had many many lives. I can really say watching this film was like I get why it would be a musical because there's so many like like Bill dancer. Yeah. And you really see that also there's just like almost this like dance montage type thing in the middle of the part with like in the middle of the movie when you see that Billy is dancing so much to like, that's like how he expresses. Self. And there's I'm like, yeah. I could see on the stage. Like, that's a really long dance number of like. Sense. Really like, it's almost fantastical in a way. We're like it's in reality. It's grounded in reality. But I was like really doing them. All right right now, really. Really gifted. I get it. You're good. But then, you know, they're like people who are passionate about that could do that all day, right? Okay. Training today. Then you're doing like tap. Yeah. But yeah. So I also say the kid who played Billy Elliot, Jamie bell. He is very talented job. You did a really good job. And kind of what happens is Billy is sensitive boxing lessons by his father. He's not good at boxing while at his boxing lesson. He sees a ballet class like going on the same Jim and he has to stay late after boxing to practice because he's bad men. So they tell him to stay. And when he's doing that he sees the girls doing ballet, he kinda ends up joining them. He doesn't really want to at first. But he's interested. You can tell looking at them like wondering what they're doing. And he's trying to like fight the girly image of ballet, basically, the home film. But he also get sucked into it. And he's very good. So he's like fighting his own talent was this based on a true story. Or was it just kind of like a I think just like kind of made. It's not. But I'm sure like real mail belly dancers would probably be going through this. Yeah. If they were straight. Yeah. I guess you our if you're still in the closet. Yeah. I feel like there's definitely like it's grounded and things that I could definitely see how real world for sure. I'm so we're gonna take another break. We're gonna come back and keep talking about Billy, Elliot. Lake shelter. Here. Rain is almost over there about to announce the new sexy man, do you feel the sex waning from you? God.

"Yes, you'll get one time you'll get once. And then you have to do it again. Raise though, they are. I'm like, I'm not breaking my arm. Just today. Crazy I walked skit on a piece of wood. Yeah. No. And I definitely got that feeling this film. And I think Jonah hill said that in his interview one of the reasons why I wasn't a good skaters because I wasn't willing to do that. Yeah. Which I totally get but you see how in the skater community. There's almost this feeling of like a glutton for punishment like you're gonna try this as many times as you as you physically can get it, you know, physically and mentally can do and there's a part where you really see that Stevie like he's not good. But he takes so many hits trying to learn and he won't give up because he's willing to go through all of that better. Wants most of them do to they're going to get this down. If it breaks me. Yeah. And it breaks people. So. Yeah. So let's say there's w this feeling of family and people take care of you because they want to take care of Stevie even though he's doing things that are going to hurt him, right? Also in this. You get the idea of class race masculinity. Like because they're all boys, and there's a scene in the very beginning. When one of the kids Ruben cells, devious, skateboard and CBS's, thank you. And Ruben says don't say, thank you, people are gonna think you're gay, and it's like this stupid. Like boy thing of like, no, I'm a man. Yeah. You know, think that I'm k-? Like that. So 'nineties to your gay. Yeah. Yeah. It is like just like I see things like that have moments. I'm glad about a boy. Yeah. And just like you see that they talk about like race briefly. And they talk about like class because just like the kid they all hang out with like the different like lorries. They all come from things like that. And I really appreciate how that got worked in my one of my small complaints about this is that stevia so young and so much smaller than all the other boys. And he looks like a little tiny kid that there are things that happens film. Like, I don't know if I believe that because you're so young. Yeah. I don't know if you do that's why the beginning like those boys are older than him. Because I know my son was like thirteen I'm like, what are you doing hanging a sixteen seventeen year olds? Yeah. You don't need just because I mean, I'm not saying that. Ages like really big factor. But at that time, you know, more than like sixteen seventeen eighteen, you know, more than a thirteen year old, and especially them like experiencing stuff. You know what I mean? It's like do. I really want my kitchen all that right now. Yeah. Some of these just like you're hanging out with a really. You know, older crowd than I feel like you're mentally ready for right and again with his issues with his family and stuff like that. He probably like more mature than you would expect him to be because of situations. He's going. Yeah. And I would say you get a sense of both of those things there's a sense of like he has gone through a lot. And he has some maturity in that. But also, they're lions we like you're so little like, you're so naive. Like, he comes to meet the boys, and he has a skateboard has like dinosaur on it. You're like. Oh, gosh. That's why the other kid ruin is like you've should buy my skateboard. Skateboard sucks. And just like there are things that are like you're so young that like you. I don't know you get the sense of like he shouldn't he shouldn't be doing all these things. But you see kinda why he right, right? So I'd say, yeah. That kind of makes sense so one of the other films. I wanna talk about is Billy Elliott, and I wouldn't mid-nineties and Billy Elliott have things in common. But I wanna point out around the end. So this is a film from the two from two thousand it is a British film, and it is directed by Stephen Daldry produced by Greg Brenneman, John Finn, and it is written by Lee hall. And so in this film, Billy, Elliot, it's basically like a dance drama, and it is about a young boy becoming a professional ballet dancer..

"Welcome back to the GMC movie podcast. We are continuing our discussion of mid nineties one of the things that I want to add about this is I want to talk a little bit about the casting so Stevie he like the we win cast him. They definitely chose a boy who looks young. He looked so small and especially next to these older like other boys, the other skater kids. He's so tiny. And he is played by sunny Soule GIC, and he is an actor. He's very good. I think he has a lot of promise in his future careers. I think also he sticks with Jonah hill. I think he's going to have some good success has he been in any other films. I've never heard of him. I'm not sure this was the first time that I had really seen him. But I would not be. I'm sure he's been other things. Sure. He's very good. Yeah. I would definitely say look out for him. He has good future. The other boys in the film who are the skater kids. They are actually not actors. They're actually pro skaters really, which I thought was amazing. And it makes sense because they're very good skaters and they make him look like trash. I don't know if like like the kid just. Tried to not do. I don't know. He couldn't which you can kind of kind of. Yeah. Basically when I can teach you just try exactly that. Oh, they're professional skaters. Yeah. And John hill was saying in this interview that he wanted pro skaters, and he met one pro skater and that that guy led him to other kids, and they're all young like, they look young. I don't I didn't look at their exact ages, but they all look the part. And if you're looking so I can't say all the names. Larry's so one of the other skaters his name is GIO Galicia. And he plays. Ruben. There is Nicole Smith who plays Ray there is all in print ad who plays a character named. I cannot say. Yeah. Explicit content. Yes. Another skater writer McLaughlin who plays. His name is fourth grade. Which is great the mom is played by Catherine Waterson. There's also another actress Alexa Demet who plays a girl in the film. And then Stevie is older, brother. Ian is played by Lucas hedges. I think everyone did a great job also in terms of their wardrobe one. I would say skater look has not changed. It kinda looks the same. But ninety two now it's funny here later people like kind of the same. I that fits the skater motif like, I don't care. Care, you know it fits, but they rarely Trow everyone looks like from the nineties. They did a lot of in the beginning. You see a lot of pop culture references of like the music the cartoons the games they play. Good job. I enjoyed that. Yeah. I liked that. Some themes in here that I felt were very strong with sort of like the theme of family, but not not like biological family or not like a us type of family. But in like finding people who accept you for who you are for who you are. But also, accept you and take care of you, which I wouldn't say there's a time when Stevie than his household where he's not. Well, I mean, his mom doesn't accept his friends. She doesn't like the skaters. But he doesn't feel like they're saying that he shouldn't be himself. Like, we'll talk about the movie Billy Elliott, which I feel like has a much stronger vibe of like, you know, be yourself. But this is like a way of you love, the people you're with sort of like the people who raise you in the influences you have. And then also like. I guess people who want to take care of in a way because we'll see that Stevie has. I don't I don't want to get this way has some issues that he deals with in ways that are unhealthy and some of the ways that it actually connects is I really watching this film. I don't skate, but I got to the idea of like, if you're skating, you have to be willing to like, you know, skate down a bunch of stairs ten thousand times and probably follow your face ten thousand. Nine hundred thousand nine hundred ninety nine..

"You know, very light it just what boys. Yeah. And you get a point better race say I'm gonna hit you. Yeah. And you kind of get an idea of some of what his older brother went through. And you do get some moments of like I understand kind of why he's abusive like he is. And I would say I really appreciate it. That they could have just written his brother in a way that maybe you didn't really have sympathy for you could be kinda villain in the film when I'm really glad that didn't do that. They gave him a bit of a story. And you do see a glimpse into kind of his mind. Right. You know? And I'm really glad that Jona hills. A good writer. Yeah. That is good writer. I I said I feel like he's a really good actor and he's a really good writer. Right. Like he and he's not writing like comedy jokes. You know, he's writing a serious film. And he did that very well. He also directed it. Well, I think and I and he had some really good like there is sort of like a jump scare moment. Kind of. Yeah. And they do that. Well, and it has good drama in it. So I really enjoyed. I thought Johnny was a really good director in this. Yeah. I like good for him. Good for him for doing directing that he wanted to have that nineties fill to oh. Like, the newbie looking kinda director camera shakes, it does kind of have that feeling because all those nineties films like really this could have been so much better. Yeah. This is what we get right? Definitely liked the nineties. Yeah. I mean, if you if you wanna relive the nineties a little bit, you can watch movie again and have that feeling these were fun.

"So kind of short period of time. Yeah. Phase, but he was really drawn to it. And almost more than the skating. I would say it felt like to me he was drawn to the people in it and kind of like some of the culture of skating like kind of like. I don't I can't say that on air sort of like, the screw you type attitude. Yeah. Of a skater, you know, and like the punk attitude and like talking back to thority. Yeah. Things like that. And so I felt like that's in it a lot. And you see that a lot on this film. The main character Stevie is drawn to them because they don't care about a thority because the kids just skate anywhere. They want their on the sidewalk there's you know, skein down like the suicide lane on roads. They don't care and he loves that. I think it's more. I kind of when I was watching the trailers I was like he's really just kind of trying to find where he fits. That's like the Phil. I got because even like in one of the like, the do was one of the older guys was kind of giving him in like almost like an older, brother talk. Like, you know, I'm here to help you out. But you need to realize who you are kinda talk. You know what I mean? So I mean, I didn't watch the whole thing. So. Did he ever get figure it out? Kind of without spoiling. That's almost why I have a hard time saying this is coming of age film because I feel like they're okay, not a huge focus on him. This is in my opinion. I would say there's not a huge focus on him becoming a better person. More like finding himself. I feel like at the end they talk about that didn't even really talk about it like you sort of get some of that. Okay. But it's it's brief. And you definitely get in this film like the sense of like a troubled kid, but he's not a bad kit. It's just that he has troubles in his life. And he kinda finds group other kids who also have that. Yeah. And the rebellious relate, and that he can relate on that sense. But it's also very much like this is like, I just watch us. Just like this is definitely how are like they're not talking about their problems. Yeah. I'll just like skating. They don't talk about their due to release. Right. Yeah. They like skate and drink and like his thing. They're coping right, exactly. Not gonna talk. Right. And I feel like that was very real because it would have been you know, I wouldn't have believed it if there had if they were always talking about. Yeah. Guys. They don't because they don't they don't really do that very much. And there is like a scene when they do have like a brother moment of sitting down and talking, but it's interesting that you brought that up because Stevie does have his brother at home and his brother at home is abuse. And to him to him to Stevie and his mom is a single mother. And you kind of learn there's a pretty big age difference between Stevie and his older brother and kind of like the circumstances of like their mom has never been married, and they have a struggle with that. Like, they struggle with that situation because their moms dot always the best mom, right? And I think like you kind of get this conversation. Not even it's it's such like a boy movie because not really a conversation with them about their mom. It's more of like, they're playing video games and sort of talking about it..

"And like, it doesn't like it doesn't really matter to me necessarily what their ages are specifically. But there is definitely a big age gap between St. and the older kids, and it's kind of like the same thing for the study. And like, it doesn't really matter to me it takes place in the summer or not the most important things that happened or like them out on the streets and out skateboarding and things like that. And Stevie is not a good skateboarder. He he's not a skater, but he sees all these kids being skaters, and he thinks they're super cool wants to join their group. So he tries to himself. How to skateboard I would say he really never gets super good. He'd never really like, you know, super improves. But that's okay tries. He tries. He tries really hard, which is part of the movie. Okay. So there are some things that happened this that I don't want to give away because it's a movie that has some twists that. I was not expecting because I'm thinking it's going to be like like, you know, it's indie movies just kind of have that like day in the life type feel and not like super big things because more like a slice of life type of thing. So that's kind of what I went into thinking about this. But I would say there are some twists that I wasn't expecting and I appreciated that also. So speaking about this film. Jona hill who I love as an actor me too. He's great. I think he's in comedy and also in drama, and I'm very impressed Oscar-nominated duty. He win it. Oscar he did write for money bowl. I think you did. Yeah. Ranges amazing actor. Yes. So he is as we said, great actor actor range and also Oscar winning, and this is first director oral he says that he would call himself a writer before anything because when he went wasn't college. He was doing like writing and movie making more on that side of the camera, but he ended up taking an acting class to better understand actors and how to work with them things like that. And he was really good. And I was listening to an interview if you guys wanna listen to a really great interview about with Jonah hill. You can listen to the fresh air podcast with the OG, Terry gross. And she asks about kind of how he got into acting. But then also now doing directing, and he was. Really good at acting. And he kind of said like they basically just comment that him enough in his acting that he decided to pursue that more seriously. And then he met John APPA, and he did super super bad and the rest is history sense. He did comedy. He also people noticed his drama abilities. He got transitioned to doing drama, and I think he took to write this movie took him like three years, and he was saying that he just put everything that he had into this. Because when he was a kid in the nineties he did do skating as well. Which is interesting because he said he was not a good skater. Just like the main characters film is not him as like a skater general. It's like, really. Yeah. So I don't think it was like I mean, obviously, it wasn't his life passion. He went on to work in movies. Right. But he did say he was pretty into it for a few years..

"Hi, everyone today, we are talking about mid nineties, which is out in theaters. Now, we are also talking about the sort of classic. I would say almost at the point of classic Billy Elliott, which is we're talking about the movie version. We're not talking about the musical play raisin two thousand fourteen. I think that was I don't remember exactly when the Broadway came out. But the movie we're talking about is from two thousand two thousand. Yes. So mid nineties is currently in theaters Twenty-eight teen it is directed by Jona hill also written by Jona hill. And he was one of the producers there are other producers involved. Also, one of the things I want to mention if you want to this movie, it is pretty short is like an hour like fifty. Five like, maybe less than that. Maybe more like around our thirty. So it's pretty short. So if you're looking for someone that's not too long theaters. You know, I'd say this is a good choice. It had sort of like an indie vibe to it like something like I feel like it felt like a director. This is like his first director or movie felt like that to me. I don't think it's a bad thing. No, I watched the I watched all the trailing and hit definitely gives you that almost documentary. You know, this isn't my first this is my first time Phil because I know that in the trailer. There was a lot of camera movement. And I was this a lot of movement. Yeah. And I kind of liked that. I thought it was. Okay. I'm so in this movie, it is about Stevie who is a thirteen year old boy in this takes place in in the nineties. Takes place in nineteen ninety s era, Los Angeles. And what I watched this film. I don't like it makes sense to me that it's like in the summer. I don't think they explicitly say that. But it's in the summer, and it has like that sort of like son like sunburnt kind of style like everything like, Los Angeles and everything just feels very like hot. Yeah. And things like that. And this happens sort of like as Stevie is struggling between his troubled home life, and then the friends that he meets during the summer, and they are local skaters and the hang out at like the local skate shop, and he Stevie has some troubles with his abusive older, brother and his single mom, and this is kind of like him as he finds this new group of friends, and you know, he spends less time at home when he goes into sort of like growing up, but in I would say, this is I hesitate to say this is like a coming of age film. I don't know if I would say that well are a lot of the friends that he makes they're older than him. Like, isn't he the youngest one? So he's like they also don't explicitly say his age. So I got his age as thirteen from like, basically, what the internet told me, but they never really say that in the movie, right? The other boys that hangs out with the oldest ones are like junior high school..
