THE KEEPER NOW PLAYING IN JPT VIRTUAL SCREENING ROOM

OCTOBER 21 - 22

He was their enemy... and became their hero.
---------
THE KEEPER tells the incredible true story of Bert Trautmann (David Kross, The Reader), a German soldier and prisoner of war who, against a backdrop of British post-war protest and prejudice, secures the position of Goalkeeper at Manchester City, and in doing so becomes a footballing icon. His signing causes outrage to thousands of fans, many of them Jewish. But Bert receives support from an unexpected direction: Rabbi Alexander Altmann, who fled the Nazis. Bert’s love for Margaret (Freya Mavor), an Englishwoman, carries him through and he wins over even his harshest opponents by winning the 1956 FA Cup Final, playing on with a broken neck to secure victory. But fate will soon twist the knife for Bert and Margaret, when their love and loyalty to each other is put to the ultimate test.

"Not only is it an extraordinary love story, but its message of forgiveness, compassion and acceptance is both relatable and relevant. And now.. amidst the global movement for freedom and justice, this film is even more timely and resonates with audiences around the world."
Sergio Carmona, South Florida Sun Sentinel
