The Damned United (15)
England in the 1960s – two very different managers command unprecedented loyalty among their fans and teams – Brian Clough, bright, colourful, indomitable and Don Revie, closed, measured, dour. The loathing and rivalry between them was to become the stuff of legend. When Revie unexpectedly leaves Leeds, Clough grabs the opportunity to take over. But Don’s family have scores to settle and his children will never accept their father’s mortal enemy.
“A pleasingly high-quality British drama with some terrific performances which should easily entertain those who come to the game without knowing what a 50/50 challenge is.”
