Opening in cinemas this week is one of the most impressive British films of the year. The Pass is directed by celebrated British filmmaker Ben A. Williams, and opens on professional footballers Jason (Russell Tovey) and Ade (Arinzé Kene), who are holed up in a Romanian hotel room on the even of a huge Champion’s League football match. They are both over-excited, unable to sleep and spend the evening fighting, knowingly mocking each other, preparing their kit, and even watching a teammate’s sex tape. Then, one of them kisses the other and their lives are changed forever.
We caught up with director Ben A. Williams earlier this week to talk about his debut feature film.
The Hollywood News: Hi Ben, pleased to meet you and congratulations on the film.
Ben A. Williams: Thank you so much.
