Louisville Jewish Film Festival – The Keeper

February 15 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

The Keeper

The true story of Bert Trautmann, a German soldier, and prisoner of war who, amid protest and prejudice, secures the position of the goalkeeper for Manchester City, and becomes a soccer icon. His signing causes outrage to thousands of fans, many of them Jewish. What proved decisive was a remarkable letter to the press from Manchester’s communal rabbi, Alexander Altmann, who fled from the Nazis, and asked for Trautmann to be given a chance. Bert’s love for Margaret, an Englishwoman, sustains him, but fate will soon twist for them when their love and loyalty to each other is put to the ultimate test.
UK, 120 minutes 

Contains some sexual scenes.

Winner of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival Audience Award.
