  • A pitch-perfect portrait of a man full of inspiration and ambition - and full of himself. show more

  • Director Tom Hooper ("John Adams") ably balances the games (surprisingly little football footage, actually), the personalities and the drama. show more

  • A dramedy laying out the dueling coaching philosophies of guys who doubtless meant a great deal to fans, but of whom I'd been blissfully unaware for decades -- is enormously engaging. Enormously. show more

    Fun movie about a great time in the history of the English game at the top level. Definitely worth seeing for any sports fan, especially soccer fans.
