Review by

This is a story of a eleven-year-old boy who is a little defferent from other boys. Though he was not good at study and even at sports, finally he found a special thing that he could do well. It was ballet. He was attracted by it greatly, but...Though most peple in this story were surprised at a male ballet dancer, those reactions were very natural in that time, I think. But, Billy made an effort to catch his own dream despite the bias. So I think he is great, and if I were in his place, I couldn't act like him. I want to praise him with 4 stars.
