The Keeper

He came as an enemy... And became their hero

The Keeper tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann (David Kross), a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, secures the position of Goalkeeper at Manchester City, and in doing so becomes a footballing icon. Struggling for acceptance by those who dismiss him as the enemy, Bert's love for Margaret (Freya Mavor), an Englishwoman, carries him through and he wins over even his harshest opponents by winning the 1956 FA Cup Final, playing on with a broken neck to secure victory. But fate will soon twist the knife for Bert and Margaret, when their love and loyalty to each other is put to the ultimate test.

"This is a heartfelt and sympathetic story"- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"The Keeper" finds the perfect way to articulate the substantial power of forgiveness"- Mark Goodyear, Battle Royale with Cheese

"The Keeper is a great story of love in adversity and is handsomely told"- David Aldridge, Radio Times
