Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Billy goes to visit his mother's grave, her gravestone describes her as "wife of Peter" (at 00:13:31). However, later in the film, Billy's dad is referred to as Jackie (at 00:22:51, 00:68:59 and 00:73:49).
  • Partly inspired by Royal Ballet dancer Philip Marsden whom writer Lee Hall met while researching the script. Marsden is from the North of England, and his family had a militant mining background.
  • In the final scene, the ballet in which Billy performs is Mathew Bourne's version of "Swan Lake" where all the Swans are played by men. Billy plays the part of the Swan, the same part he discusses with Mrs Wilkinson earlier in the film.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Billy visits Debbie at her house, he has his school bag with him (at 00:29:37), but he doesn't have it any more when he is driven home (00:35:35).
