    Billy Elliot

    ★★★★½

    "Just 'cause I like ballet, doesn't mean I'm a poof, you know."

    I really love Billy's relationship with his dance teacher. That car scene, tho. So adorable.

    Outlaw King is above all one of the most watchable Netflix titles I've seen this year. After reading some articles about its historical inaccuracies, my initial thoughts about this film were still intact as it's barely boring and quite gripping at times. While it didn't maintain the acclaimed feel with the lead of Hell or High Water, Mackenzie still managed to craft a decent entry to his filmography.
