In this parallels game you cite instances where art and fiction (BE musical and film) imitate real life, or vice versa.

1. Miners strike, Thatcher (life). Billy Elliot the film and musical (art).

2. Elton John's musical pursuits are not supported by his own father (life). Billy's dancing abilities are not encouraged by his dad either (art).

3. Swan Lake scene in film & dream ballet scene in musical (art). Liam M as Swan Lake performer (life).

4. Billy dreams of dancing as an older, accomplished pro (art). Liam M slated to dance as older self (life).
