                                                                                            Biography Drama Romance  Cert 15

The Keeper (2018) is a British-German biographical drama film which tells the extraordinary love story between a young English woman and a German PoW, who together overcome prejudice, public hostility, and personal tragedy.

While visiting a PoW camp at the end of WWII. Margaret Friar (Freya Mavor), the daughter of the manager of the local football team, notices young German paratrooper Bert Trautmann (David Kross). Her father is so taken by Bert's prowess as a goal-keeper that he gets him out of the camp to play for his local team. Margaret and Bert's love blossoms despite local hostility and resentment of the German PoWs.

Bert's heroics in goal are noticed by Manchester's City Football Club. Rather than going back to Germany, Bert marries Margaret and signs for Manchester City. His signing causes outrage to thousands of fans, many of them Jewish.  Margaret however wins support from the influential Rabbi Altmann who publishes an open letter opposing the campaign against Bert. Bert's path to acceptance begins and peaks at the 1956 FA Cup Final when he secures victory for Manchester City despite a collison with another player which shatters a vertebra in his neck and almost costs him his life.


                  Our last film screened on Friday 12th July was Vice and unfortunatley was not well attended as we were in competition with Nadal and Federer!Although enjoyed by some it was rather a strange film taking us from the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers ending with the invasion of Iraq.
