The Keeper (2019)
The Keeper tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann (David Kross), a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, secures the position of Goalkeeper at Manchester City, and in doing so becomes a footballing icon.
Struggling for acceptance by those who dismiss him as the enemy, Bert’s love for Margaret (Freya Mavor), an Englishwoman, carries him through and he wins over even his harshest opponents by winning the 1956 FA Cup Final, playing on with a broken neck to secure victory.
Fate will soon twist the knife for Bert and Margaret, when their love and loyalty to each other is put to the ultimate test.
“This is a muscular and sympathetic story” – The Guardian
“The Keeper is a great story of love in adversity and is handsomely told” – Radio Times
