Good film - topical subject. An 18 rating is unjustified!
19 July 2018 | by steveybabesSee all my reviews

Very topical story of gay footballers (in the closet). Quite a gentle film rather than hard hitting. Beautiful cast, beautiful locations - are there no ordinary looking gay guys/footballers?!

One very simulated very shortsex scene (you really see nothing) doesn't warrant an 18 certificate which is really disappointing and cuts off an important potential younger audience from this film.

Bit of a cliched ending in my book - have seen this type of ending many times but as I said its not a hard hitting film.

Worth watching just because there has been nothing like this out there before around football
