The definitive story of Sir Matt Busby, the founding father of modern Manchester United, a sporting pioneer whose legacy can be traced right up to the treble-winning Manchester United side of 1999, and beyond.
During his 25 years in charge of Manchester United, the charismatic leader led the club to total domestic dominance and European glory. Known for his championing of young players, Busby developed football legends including George Best and Bobby Charlton, one of the original ‘Busby Babes’. Transforming Manchester United from the second-best team in town into one of the world’s most successful and iconic football clubs, Busby changed the shape of, not just United and the city of Manchester as a whole, but the very game itself.
Directed by Joe Pearlman, the film features previously unseen archive footage and interviews with those who knew Busby best including the remaining ‘Busby Babes’ and members of the 1968 European Cup winning team, the ‘Class of ’92’, and others.
