thanks your comment.
I think you are right. I mean that the context of billy eliot referr one young people choice,passion and resist. Also the meaning of Hope is important for me with billy elliot or another exemple because I want to believe and I hope to see the same resistance, passion and beliefs with somebodies art. I know this is so nostalgic but I think it is necessity for this age (90's and 2000's) sorry my english.
I hope, because I need...
and I need to hope...
