The film’s father-son relationship is its most heartfelt aspect. Dads, who rarely feature prominently in queer cinema, are notorious for whittling down their son’s hopes and dreams in favour of helping them learn to face reality “like a man”. In a seriously heated discussion moments after Billy’s father learns his son has taken to pliés and pirouettes, his prejudice weighs in: “Lads do football or boxing or wrestling… not friggin ballet.” extract review by Oliver Skinner, 15.6.04, IndieWire
