The Bromley Boys is a funny yet touching coming of age football memoir played out to the sights and sounds of late 60's Britain. Based on the hilarious novel by Dave Roberts, it recounts the author's highs and the lows supporting the worst football team in the country at the time - Bromley FC. —TJ Herbert
Bromley Boys Night Out
Saw this film at a special screening at Churchill Theatre Bromley. Although not packed out (due to very inclement weather that night) there was still a good crowd of varying ages. Really enjoyed this "feelgood" first romance story interwoven round the highs and lows of Bromley FC. Based on a true story, with great soundtrack weaving through the film, it was genuinely one of the best Sunday nights out I have had for years. The comedy was laugh out loud, the pathos had me reaching for a tissue...we wanted our boy to win...won't spoil your enjoyment by giving away any more of the plot... If you have ever stood on the terrace at your local football club, or supported your child at a school game, or cheered a friend playing at the local park then this film will transport you back...if you are a certain age and can remember the late sixties this film will transport you back to the fashion and feel of those years...if you ever wondered what your grandparents did back in their day...if you just want to see a funny, feel good movie - then search out a screening of The Bromley Boys for 90 minutes of great entertainment with no blood and guts, no high speed car chases, no nudity - just good old fashioned family entertainment. And if you're from Bromley... I was extra lucky - our screening even had people involved in making the movie on hand for Q + A session after the screening. Hope they do that when the film is released on DVD.
