The Damned United

Based on the book by UK author David Peace, with an intelligently constructed screenplay by Brit Peter Morgan, this fresh, smart and absorbing film boasts high-profile UK acting talent such as Michael Sheen, Timothy Spall and Stephen Graham. British-Australian filmmaker Tom Hooper flawlessly directs, while UK companies Left Bank Pictures and BBC Films co-produce.





In 1974, after Don Revie (Colm Meaney) quit to become the England boss, Brian Clough (Michael Sheen) led Leeds United Football Club for a tumultuous six-week period. Determined to impose his own style on the team, Clough soon begins to find resistance in both his players and the board.
