The Keeper

Director: Marcus H. Rosenmüller
Starring: Dave Johns, Freya Mavor, David Kross, Harry Melling, John Henshaw
Duration: 119 min

The Keeper tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann, a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, joined Manchester City as goalkeeper and became a footballing icon.

In the film, Bert (Kross) struggles to be accepted by those who dismiss him as the enemy, but his love for Margaret (Mavor), an Englishwoman, carries him through. He even wins over his harshest opponents in the 1956 FA Cup Final, playing on with a broken neck to secure victory. But fate will soon twist the knife for Bert and Margaret, putting their love and loyalty to each other to the ultimate test.
