Seven people talk about their passion for football. Each character talks intimately, unveiling their innermost hopes and fears. One by one they touch on themes central to us all: the fragility of our mental selves, the failings of our bodies, the complexities of our relationships and ambitions and our need to connect. These are stories about football, and stories about life.
Greg Cruttwell started out as an actor, but is now a writer, director and producer. He co-founded Head Gear Films in 2002 and Bankside Films in 2007. He is also the Founder, Chairman, Director of Football and First Team Manager of Balham FC. In 2018 the club, having won five promotions in six years, made its first appearance in the FA Cup. Before his life in football and switching to the other side of the camera, from where, amongst other things, he devised ITV game show Football Genius, hosted by Tim Vine, Greg made his big screen debut in Mike Leigh's Naked, which is playing as a retrospective in this year's London Film Festival. With The Football Monologues and In the Middle, Greg has brought his passions for film and football together.
