Starring 13-year-old newcomer Jamie Bell in the title role, the movie tells how 11-year-old Billy’s recently widowed father Jackie and his brother Tony are on strike from their jobs in the coal mines in 1984 Northeast England under conservative anti-communist Margaret Thatcher. Billy, of course, misses his mother dreadfully, and his dad struggles to make ends meet as Thatcher’s government allegedly refuses to meet any of the miners’ terms. With his dad’s mind on finances and Billy’s brother, Tony, treating him like a terrible nuisance, Billy’s only comfort is his school friend Michael.
