Marcus H. Rosenmüller | Drama | U.K. | English, German | 113 min

The fascinating true story of forgiveness about Bert Trautmann, a WWII German soldier and prisoner-of-war, who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, becomes a footballing icon by securing the position of Goalkeeper for Manchester City. His signing causes outrage but Bert receives support from an unexpected direction: Rabbi Alexander Altmann, who fled the Nazis. Bert's love for Margaret, an Englishwoman, carries him through. His winning career includes years of devoted performance on the field including playing with a broken neck in the 1956 FA Cup Final. Fate soon twists the knife for Bert and Margaret, when their love and loyalty to each other are put to the ultimate test. The film features Downton Abbeys John Henshaw and Harry Melling, who played Dudley Dursley in the Harry Potter series. Can you spot them?
