Trivia

Filming took place during the winter of 2010 and was hampered by the heavy snowfall that year. Only on the two days when the scenes of the plane crash in the snow were filmed, there was no natural snow and snow machines had to be employed. See more »

Quotes

Bobby Charlton: What more do I need to do to get into the team?
Duncan Edwards: Keep working, keep smiling, time will come.
Bobby Charlton: That's easy for you to say with your England cap at seventeen. Everybody loves you, mighty Duncan Edwards.
Duncan Edwards: I went throught the same as you. And I grafted every hour of every day. I didin't get given a place in the team, I stole one.

United damn good
25 April 2011 | by davesleepjonesSee all my reviews

I was once in a play about Hillsborough and that started my interest in foot ball a bit morbid i know but you have to start somewhere.I new nothing of the details about the 1958 air disaster in Munich and i feel after see this nostalgic drama i should. While watching United there was a wonderful reminiscence rather than a desperate pot boiler the plot and performances led you by the hand and cared for you throughout the hour and a half. The only thing i could relate this to would be Dead Poets Society or Remember The Titans. I did feel that David Tennant was far better than anything i have seen him in before and Dougary Scot should not only have played wolverine but is the only choice for a Sean Connery the life of film.
