13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>The Damned United</i> Montpelier Vermont

Set in 1960s and 1970s England, THE DAMNED UNITED tells the darkly humorous story of Brian Clough's doomed 44-day tenure as manager of the reigning champions of English football-Leeds United. The New York Times: "THE DAMNED UNITED is the rare sports movie that deals with-indeed positively relishes-humiliation and disappointment. Its real-life protagonist, the soccer coach Brian Clough was, over his long career, a winner with an extraordinary record of accomplishment. But the film, directed by Tom Hooper from Peter Morgan's script, is much more interested in the dramatic flameout that disrupted and almost ended his rise to football glory. You've probably seen a dozen movies in which a tough coach takes a squad of misfits and underachievers and turns them into champions. Clough (Michael Sheen), perhaps uniquely in the annals of sporting cinema, reverses the process. The movie to its credit does not really bother with what happens on the field. That's a mere diversion from the real drama, which involves power, money and men in suits." With Timothy Spall, Colm Meaney, and Jim Broadbent. Sponsored by Onion River Sports. 98 minutes.
