The Damned United

Post by PurplePrideTrumpet on Sat Oct 31, 2009 7:48 pm

It opened Friday at Fox Tower and I saw it today. I would highly recommend it.

It tells the story of Brian Clough's 44 days as manager of Leeds, who in the 70s were the dominant club in England. Why so short? There's lots of reasons and the movie explains the backstory you need to know if you're not up on English soccer. Clough was a driven and intelligent manager who also had a number of deep flaws and actor Michael Sheen shows us both these sides beautifully. Definitely worth a look.

Cool. I will see that. "Invictis" also looks like a tremendous sports/politics movie with Morgan Freeman as Mandela:
