Saturday Matinee Nostalgia
This film will appeal to many UK residents of a certain age, who can remember the Saturday morning cinema clubs and this Children's Film Foundation offering is one of the classics of those heady 60's years.
Shot entirely on location in Manchester and Salford this film offers a glimps of a time and an age of innocence long since lost. A simple but well crafted story about the fortunes of a group of local kids whose lives revolve around their passion for football (soccer for those American members).
I had the good fortune of being able to buy this on dvd recently as part of a series of Childen's Film Foundation releases - well worth it!
