Product Description

PLAYING AWAY
A film by Horace Ové

When a West Indian cricket team from Brixton are invited to play a charity game in a small English village, members of both teams have their reservations. A weekend in the country away from the inner city produces unexpected results both on and off the field of play. Playing away subtly explores and undermines white and black stereotypes and succeeds in linking two familiar but strange cultures through the simple device of a cricket match.

From pioneering British filmmaker Horace Ové (Pressure, 1975) comes this comedy of manners with an outstanding array of British talent on display, including Ross Kemp (EastEnders) and Neil Morrissey (Men Behaving Badly) at the start of their careers, and a poignant performance by the brilliant Norman Beaton (Desmonds).

Special Features

  • Horace Ové in conversation with Mike Phillips
  • Illustrated booklet containing essays and credits
  • Fully compressed PCM audio throughout
