The Pitmen Painters

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.
