MVH-The Keeper

A British-German biographical film that recounts the story of footballer Bert Trautmann.
It tells of the remarkable love story between a young English woman, Margaret Friar, and a German POW, Bert, who together overcome prejudice, public hostility and tragedy.

While visiting a POW camp near Manchester, Margaret's father John, a tradesman and manager of non-league side St. Helens, is impressed by Bert's skill as a goalkeeper and succeeds in getting Bert out of the camp to play for his local team. Despite hostility towards the German POWs, love blossoms between Bert and Margaret.
Bert's prowess in goal is noticed by Manchester City Football Club which signs him up as a player but he then has further challenges to face.
This is not primarily a sports film but instead a drama.
Stars: David Kross, Freya Mavor, John Henshaw & Dervla Kirwan.
Doors open at 7.00pm; show starts at 7.30pm in the village hall. Refreshments are on sale. Tickets £7 are available at the door.
Coming soon:
Downton Abbey (PG): The continuing story of the Crawley family with much of the original cast returning.
Please note this will be screened on Saturday 15 February (not on a Friday!).
