Stars: Russell Tovey, Arinzé Kene, Lisa McGrillis
Two young footballers share a room on the eve of the most important match of their careers so far. Restless, they can’t sleep and joke and banter around, until one kisses the other… Adapted by John Donnelly from his play, the film then follows their lives and careers for the following five and ten years, showing how one small moment can have a huge impact in one’s life. A great performance by Tovey (The History Boys, Him & Her, Being Human) leads a small but confident cast in Williams’s well-directed first feature film.
