On this week’s episode of The Pick of the Flicks Podcast, stand-up comedian Alexandra Haddow stops by to discuss the early noughties British classic Billy Elliot, in which Julie Walters helps Jamie Bell become a ballet dancer against the backdrop of the 1980s miners’ strike. We chat about the bleakness of the 1980s, Bell’s brilliant performance and unusual crushes on members of the supporting cast.
