The Beautiful Game

Directed by British filmmaker Thea Sharrock (Me Before You, Wicked Little Letters), and written by the UK’s Frank Cottrell Boyce, this heartwarming sports drama is as uplifting as it is powerful. Brought to life by outstanding performances from British actors Bill Nighy, Micheal Ward, Susan Wokoma and Kit Young, and co-produced by UK outfits Film4 and Blueprint Pictures.





Mal (Bill Nighy) manages England's homeless football team, taking his players to Rome to compete in a global tournament: the Homeless World Cup. Mal makes the last-minute decision to add talented striker Vinny (Micheal Ward) to the squad, who could help them to win if only he’d let go of his past and become part of the team.
