Colin catches her committing adultery with team captain Geoff, a cop, who pretends Colin abused her. Col is thrown off the team just after it qualified for the league finals in Blackpool. He decides to travel there alone, hoping to win her back. The adventurous journey feels like the start of a more playful life. Written by
One of the best movies I've seen in a long-time! (We rented it purely on the off-chance (there was nothing else that caught our eye).
Beautifully acted and well-directed, what really made this film for me was the cinematography; the film is beautiful shot. From the grim cityscapes of Sheffield, across the scenic Peak District, to the garish tourist-trap that is Blackpool, the film brings northern Britain to life.
The soundtrack, by British folk legends Kate Rusby and John McCusker is haunting.
A wonderful, under-rated movie that helped restore my faith in the power of cinema after one too many Hollywood CGI-fests.
