AJFF: The Keeper

February 23, 2020    7:40pm

An ex-Nazi plays soccer for salvation in this rousing, romantic, epic true story. No longer a British POW, the Manchester City team hires Bert Trautmann as goalkeeper, where he arouses the interest of the club manager’s daughter, and the post-war ire of fans. Famously playing the ‘56 FA Cup Final with a broken neck, Trautmann’s tale tells of how sports can unite.
