Fall in love with the incredible true story of THE KEEPER, exclusively on ChaiFlicks!
Discover the remarkable story of Bert Trautmann (David Kross, "The Reader"), a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, secures the position of Goalkeeper for Manchester City - thanks to the support of a local Rabbi and the love of an Englishwoman (Freya Mavor, "Skins") - and in doing so becomes a legendary footballing icon.
"Astonishing! The legendary goalkeeper overcame the fact that he was a captured prisoner of war to win an Englishwoman’s love, the 1956 FA Cup for Manchester City and, most difficult of all, the hearts of post-War British soccer fans." - The Forward
"Excellent! A heartfelt blend of romance and football." - The Guardian
"Proof that sometimes truth is very much stranger than fiction.” - JTA
