About this Film

The Keeper

ODEON says...
In the aftermath of the Second World War, against a backdrop of protest and prejudice from the people of Britain, a German former POW becomes goalkeeper for Manchester City.

Dismissed as the enemy and struggling to be accepted, he falls in love with an Englishwoman named Margaret and gradually wins over his opponents with his talent for football – a talent which would take him to the 1956 FA Cup Final.

An incredible true story of determination against impossible odds, ‘The Keeper’ stars David Kross and Freya Mavor.

Great film

Reviewer: TC, NantwichDate: 2019-06-28

Very much enjoyed this film, it kept my attention to the end. The group we went with had two people not interested in football but they enjoyed the film that much they Googled after the film to research who Bert Trautmann was.

Why is this only showing in Manchester? I appreciate that he played his football in that city but believe it or not there are those outside of Manchester who would like to see this. What a crazy notion eh!!!!!!
