A transforming, true story of friendship, aspiration, and the power of art from the acclaimed writer of Billy Elliot.
Who is allowed to be an artist? Can art only be appreciated by the elite? From the acclaimed writer of Billy Elliot comes the real-life story of a close-knit group of northern English miners whose lives are transformed when they unexpectedly discover their own artistic potential. Funny, gritty, and moving, The Pitmen Painters is both a thought-provoking exploration of the politics of art and an uplifting celebration of the creative impulse in us all.
