What follows is the story of a young man in the middle of a strange land, befriended by strangers, who in the end has to try to find it in himself to be good enough for his dream. For himself. It is a story told in England and in Los Angeles. A story about different kinds of love and forgiveness and family.
It is a very human story. And it made me cry.
Right after the movie my kid was up with his World Cup soccer ball working on spinning moves and fancy foot work displayed by Santiago Munez. SCORE!!!
First Kuno Becker gives a fine performance in the lead role as a young Mexican immigrant in Los Angeles who is spotted playing park football and ends up in the English Premier League. Second- The film is unusual in the dual settings of Los Angeles and Newcastle, UK. Third- The football sequences are well done and feature cameos by numerous big name players and the depiction of game day at St Jame's park in Newcastle is incredibly cool.
Finally, for a soccer fan living in the LA area how can you not be drawn into a film that deals with both your hometown and your favorite sport.
