now this is a film that I will actually see. based on a true story
In the 1950 world cup of soccer, England was one of the favorites to become world champions, the United States was just there for the ride. The US won the match 1-0, It was The Biggest upset in soccer (and perhaps all sports) history and a defining moment for american sports. It is said to be more concentrated on family values and the lives of the players then a film like "Miracle".
This film has been a long time coming, based on the book by Geoffery Douglas, I'm very glad to see this film happen, being such a big soccer fan.
All star cast including Wes Bentley, Gerald Butler, Jay Rodan and Patrick Stewart and John Rhys Davis. American Soccer Stars including John Harkes, Landon Donovan and Freddy Adu will also have roles in the film.
I'm going to go so far as to recommend this one, any sports or movie fan will get a kick out of it. comes out this friday
