This review is from: When Saturday Comes  [DVD] (DVD)
I was not expecting a lot from this film but was pleasantly surprised. It is about the life of a factory worker (Jimmy Muir played by Sean Bean) who loves his football, drinking & family. Jimmy meets the office wages clerk (Emily Lloyd) and falls for her. Then he gets offered a trial at his beloved Sheffield United. On the eve of the trial due to pressure from his mates he goes on a bender. He loses his chance of a football career and his girl. Then fate steps in when an accident happens at the mine. This time he will not make the same mistake again. He calls on Ken (Pete Postlethwaite - excellent as always)to help him train and get a second trial. Great sound track. Good northern film. Very watchable.
