believe soccer film

If you’re a soccer fan and you’re looking for a movie to watch this weekend, you might want to check out Believe.

Based on a true story, the film focuses on 11-year-old Georgie, a gifted soccer player in 1980s Manchester who dreams of winning the Manchester Junior Cup. His friends and teammates want to win, too. Only problem is they don’t have a manager. And they’re not really that organized, as teams go. But everything changes when Georgie steals the wallet of Sir Matt Busby. Sir Matt was a legendary Manchester United coach who survived a tragic plane crash that killed eight of his players. After Georgie pinches Sir Matt’s wallet, Sir Matt tracks him down, sees he has some skills, and decides to come out of retirement and coach the kids in the tournament.

The film is loaded with drama and comedy, which you can see in this exclusive clip and the movie's trailer:
