“If you believe, you can score with your eyes shut.” – Sir Matt Busby
I received a free DVD from Deseret Book to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own and may differ from yours.
In 1984, he helped a group of U12 boys who wanted to enter a soccer tournament. In the movie, Believe, it is purported that the boys did not know that it was Matt Busby when he volunteered to coach them. Whether or not that is true, who knows, but it makes for a good plot twist 🙂 The main character, Georgie, has lost his father and his mom is struggling on her own to raise him. Georgie has the tendency to get into trouble, but Matt believes in him.
The actors in Believe are very good! I was surprised by the quality of acting from the kids who play on the soccer team. At the end of the movie, they show the kids and what teams they play for in real life. So these are just kids who play soccer. Yet, they can really act. The movie is full of emotion and humor. The story is so well written and directed. You can find out more about the actors on IMDB.
Even if you have no clue what soccer is about, you will enjoy this movie because of the way it will tug at your heart. You’ll laugh and cry and find yourself completely immersed in this wonderful movie. Dreams are within reach when you Believe.
Believe, the soccer movie, is on Facebook with lots of fun soccer facts and debates. Give them a like and follow the conversation.
Please check out the Movie Trailer! It’s very cute!
