Film The Damned United chronicles life of one of Britain’s finest football managers

News Oct 15, 2009 Ancaster News

Ruba Nadda, writer/director, attended Ancaster Film Fest’s screenings of her film Cairo Time, along with her sister, actress/assistant director Fadia and Wendy Blushke, programming coordinator with the Toronto International Film Festival Film Circuit. An audience of 672 viewed her wonderfully artful and cinematic film.

Ms. Nadda also led a question-and-answer session after each screening. Cairo Time, winner of best Canadian feature at TIFF 2009, is now playing on a limited number of screens across Canada and is highly recommended. More than $1,400 from the proceeds of the screenings was donated to the Hamilton Out of the Cold Program.

AFF's next film, The Damned United, was a gala presentation at TIFF last month. Based on the best-selling book of the same name, The Damned United is the story of one of Britain’s finest football managers, Brian Clough, and his 44-day reign at the helm of Leeds United.

The film explores the story by moving backwards and forwards in time, but always at the heart of The Damned United is its trump card. Michael Sheen has already richly deserved an abundance of plaudits in his acting career, not least for his superb portrayal of David Frost in Frost/Nixon, and Tony Blair in The Queen and he carves out another terrific performance. Taking on the challenge of playing the larger than life Clough, his work here is tremendous.

The screenplay is by Oscar winner Peter Morgan (The Last King of Scotland, The Queen, Frost/Nixon).

The Damned United screens at the Ancaster Silver City on Monday Oct. 19 at 4 and 7:15 p. m. The box office opens at 3 and 6 p. m. respectively. Nonmembers pay $9 for the afternoon matinee and $10 in the evening. Proceeds will be split between the Neighbour to Neighbour Food Bank and the Good Shepherd Food Bank.

Memberships for 2010 will also be sold prior to the screening for a cost $60 and include the first eight films attended in 2010. Films after the first eight will cost $7 each. See www.ancasterfilmfest.ca . Email any questions to ancasterfilmfest@cogeco.ca or call 905-648-2277.
