The kids got kick

OUT NOW! THE LIVERPOOL GOALIE remains imaginative, poignant and entertaining despite its football based premise.

Life is full of potentially fatal moments. Although 13-year-old Jo (Hagen) understands that he should live it to the fullest, especially because it could be over any second, he’s not exactly a risk-taker. He’s good at math, collects soccer cards (in pursuit of the titular elusive Liverpool goalkeeper) and tries to figure out how to approach the girl he has a crush on. A crowd-pleaser (and an award winner at last year’s Berlinale), it’s funny, moving, imaginative and thoroughly entertaining.

The Liverpool Goalie | Directed by Arild Andresen (Norway 2010) with Ask van der Hagen, Susanne Boucher. Starts March 15
