On top of the insinuations about Hernandez’s reputation, the suit alleges that Hernandez’s general marks on his reviews began to drop noticeably after 2011. In addition, Hernandez has not been selected to work a World Series during Torre’s time in the commissioner’s office despite his veteran status and what Hernandez says is his notable proficiency at his job—nor, for that matter, has he been promoted to crew chief despite applying for the role multiple times. Officiating the World Series (something Hernandez was selected for in 2002 and 2005) and being promoted to crew chief (a job Hernandez has twice taken up on an interim basis) both come with substantial pay increases that Hernandez feels he has been unfairly prevented from getting.
County Durham, during the endless, violent 1984 strike against the Thatcher closure of British coal mines. Widower Jackie Elliot and his firstborn, fellow miner Tony, take a dim view of 11 year-old second son Billy's poor record in boxing class, which worsens when they discover he sneakily transferred to the neighboring, otherwise girls-only-attended ballet class. Only one schoolmate, closet-gay Michael Caffrey, encourages Billy's desire, aroused by the teacher, who judged him talented enough for private lesson, to train and try out for the world-renowned Royal Ballet audition. Only the prospect of a fancy career unimagined in the pauper quarter may twist pa and big brother's opposition to indispensable support.
Note : Once again, we are confronted by a movie that might be ideal for teenagers near Billy Elliot's age, but has been slapped with the R rating. While kids will gladly sneak into R-rated movies they hope will be violent or scary, the R barrier only discourages them from films that could be helpful or educational. In the case of "Billy Elliot," the movie contains only mild violence and essentially no sex, and the R is explained entirely by the language, particularly the "F-word." The filmmakers believe that is a word much used by British coal miners, and I am sure they are correct.
