Haunting film that is difficult to forget.
I saw this film for the first time over a week ago and can't get it out of my mind. I was not familiar with the story nor had I ever seen Robert Duvall in such an powerful but understated performance. At first I wondered if I would like the movie but soon found I could not take my eyes off the screen. It was like being transported back in time to a place I've never been, and was watching this story unfold as if it was actually happening right in front of me. Robert Duvall was amazing, absolutely stunning. The story says so much about love and how important it is for all of us. Watch this movie...it is riveting and such a great story!
I don't know much about soccer and had never heard of the movie. Our 9 year old grandson brought it when he came to visit and we enjoyed it immensely! The acting was very believable an the story was well done. We had a little trouble understanding the British accents, but no problem knowing what emotion was being portrayed. I'd recommend this movie to anyone who loves sports, soccer, a nice love story, or just wants a decent movie to watch with the kids. I liked the relationship Santiago had with his grandmother and brother and felt sad that he didn't reconcile with his father. But that just made us realize how important it is to maintain family relationships. This story had other themes that gave it depth, such as having dreams and realizing them, making your way in the world without handouts, importance of friendship, teamwork and keeping your feet on the ground despite fame.
