Product description

Product Description

Eleven-year-old Will Brennan is Liverpool FCs biggest fan. When his long-absent father, Gareth, briefly reappears with tickets to the 2005 Champions League Final in Istanbul, Will s dream of watching his beloved team in one of their biggest ever matches is about to come true. But not everyone wants Will to go... Will is forced to run away from school to keep his dream alive and sets out on his own on the adventure of a lifetime. Travelling across Europe to get to the match and see his Liverpool heroes, can he overcome the odds and live out his very own football fantasy?

From Amazon.co.uk

As far as memorable football matches go, Liverpool’s astonishing European Champions League victory of 2005 in Istanbul takes some beating, whether you’re a fan of the team or not. It’s effectively a pilgrimage to watch that match which forms the backbone of Will, a tidy British film featuring Perry Eggleton as the 11-year old title character.

The cast also features Bob Hoskins and Damian Lewis, whilst also attracting fleeting appearances from football icons Steven Gerrard and Kenny Dalglish. The latter pair, as you might expect, are safer in their primary careers. Eggleton, though, makes a good fist of his role as Will, even if the material does him few favours. Inevitably, his journey to the final is a problematic one, for reasons we won’t spoil. Perhaps just as inevitability, it’s a bumpy one from a narrative standpoint, too. A tighter, better script would have rejuvenated a film that, as it stands, relies on a lot of footballing goodwill to get through.

But Will does just about have enough in the tank. And as the search for the central character continues, while he runs off in search of his final dream, chances are you will be rooting for him to reach his goal. Beyond the film, the disc doesn’t have much else to commend it, but at least the title feature is worth a spin. --Jon Foster
