Football&Cinema: Looking for Eric
We are not the best reviewer in the world about cinema, but in this section we’ll try to introduce you some movies about football or where football has at least a significant role, and we’ll give you a brief unqualified opinion about it.
Looking for Eric is a 2009 film directed by Ken Loach and tells the story of Eric, a middle-aged postman and a big Manchester United fan, with a complicated family situation and dealing with depression. One day, after drinking too much, Eric started meeting an imaginary Éric Cantona, his idol, who will help his namesake with psycological advices, and will help him to face a difficult situation involving his son. Moreover, there will be a nice suprise in the final scenes. This is a nice movie, sometimes funny, and can give few useful life advices.
