Movie Review: Believe

In the early 80’s the legendary Manchester United football manager Sir Matt Busby helps a wayward boy fulfill his dream.

Having lived with football all his life and survived the tragic 1958 Munich plane disaster in which 8 of his promising young players were killed, Matt, still haunted by the ghosts of the “Busby Babes” comes out of retirement for one last coaching challenge, to transform a young group of scallywags into a dream team to compete for the upcoming Manchester United Football League Cup.

A funny and touching family film, Believe tells the story of how Matt is finally healed, while continuing to inspire generations of dreamers and leaving the world’s greatest football team as his legacy.

RELEASE DATE: September 12th 

I'm excited to tell you about this new family film set to release this Friday.  I was able to preview this film this film early for review- my thanks to Deseret Book for making that possible.

Finding good movies the whole family can enjoy can sometimes be a difficult thing.  It makes me happy to be able to promote family films that leave you feeling good.  

This movie was touching and heartwarming.  It's one of those "feel good" films.  The characters were all likeable and those little kids with the British accents were absolutely adorable.  They are kids who really play football in England.  I love that. 

This movie is based on the real life story of Matt Busby, Manchester United football manager.  Movies based on true stories are some of the best.

I loved this film.  I'm a bit obsessed with soccer (or football, depending on where you live) right now so yeah, this movie hit my sweet spot.  :)  And, my son is currently living in England so it was a double sweet spot win.
