Movie Info

Meet Paul, an English teacher in his mid-thirties; a man with an obsession -- football. As the season and the film progresses, his team look certain to end a barren run of eighteen years without winning the Football League Championship. Paul meets Sarah, who has a propensity for severity, dourness and single-minded professionalism. Against their better judgment -- Paul thinks Sarah is too uptight, Sarah thinks Paul is a monomaniacal yob -- they embark on an occasionally stormy relationship. And Paul soon discovers that, unlike football, relationships aren't played out in seasons. Their roller coaster relationship becomes even more entertaining and enthralling than the nailbiting end to the League Championship, and Sarah comes to understand not only that football can be more than "just a game," but that it has the potential for the kind of heart-stopping dream-come-true moments rarely found in life.
