Starring: Alfred Enoch, Frida Gustavsson, Liv Mjones.

Based on the real-life story of 16 year-old Swedish soccer wunderkind Martin Bengtsson, Tigers is a rare and refreshing entry into the sports movie genre. Rather than follow the well-worn narrative trajectory of struggle followed by success, the picture looks instead at the considerable cost of excellence. 

Tigers takes us inside the gilded cage inhabited by top tier, rising star footballers. Following a year in the life of a teenager whose dream is realised when he is bought by an Italian club, but who quickly realises that having a hefty price tag doesn’t necessarily improve his own self-worth, the film tackles head on the taboo subject of mental health issues in professional football. 

This screening will be followed by a discussion hosted by Premiere League Presenter Manish Bhasin in conversation with Chester FC Manager Calum McIntyre, and Macclesfield FC Welfare & Community Trust Manager Lee Folkard.

Reviews

A film that feels powerful enough to inspire actual reform.
Bracingly raw.
Gripping true-life tale of a troubled Swedish football prodigy.
