Billy Elliot ★★★★

the creepy and gross mirror to reality where it’s seen as awe inspiring and loving that the dad has to sell precious jewelry to afford the school, rather than absolutely fucking mental, like those articles that are like ‘so sweet! these coworkers donated their totaled 3 days off for this woman who broke her hip, doesn’t have health insurance, and is probably going to be fired in 3 days when she still can’t com back to work, and now her coworkers lost a day off for no reason 🥰’
