Today I get to tell you about a great movie that I was able to see. I'm always on the lookout for movies that I can watch with our whole family and not have to be concerned that our kids are going to see something that they shouldn't be seeing. This is one of those movies.
About the movie: In the early 80’s the legendary Manchester United football manager Sir Matt Busby helps a wayward boy fulfill his dream.
Having lived with football all his life and survived the tragic 1958 Munich plane disaster in which 8 of his promising young players were killed, Matt, still haunted by the ghosts of the “Busby Babes” comes out of retirement for one last coaching challenge, to transform a young group of scallywags into a dream team to compete for the upcoming Manchester United Football League Cup.
A funny and touching family film, Believe tells the story of how Matt is finally healed, while continuing to inspire generations of dreamers and leaving the world’s greatest football team as his legacy.
My review: This was a fun movie. I really loved that all of the actors are from England, they all have amazing accents. I really love the main star of the movie, Georgie. All he wants to do is play football, but his methods get him into big trouble with his mom, and with Matt Busby. I like that Matt is able to see beyond Georgie's antics and realize what a true find he is for the world of football. And I really enjoyed Matt's transformation throughout the movie as well. Another really great thing about the movie is that the kids are all really soccer players, not actors so you get to see some real soccer. If you are a fan of clean, inspiring entertainment you won't want to miss this great movie!
I was sent a DVD of this movie in exchange for an honest review.
