Movie: Believe--In Theaters Now!!

Movie Plot:
In the early 80’s the legendary Manchester United football manager Sir Matt Busby helps a wayward boy fulfill his dream.

Having lived with football all his life and survived the tragic 1958 Munich plane disaster in which 8 of his promising young players were killed, Matt, still haunted by the ghosts of the “Busby Babes” comes out of retirement for one last coaching challenge, to transform a young group of scallywags into a dream team to compete for the upcoming Manchester United Football League Cup.

A funny and touching family film, Believe tells the story of how Matt is finally healed, while continuing to inspire generations of dreamers and leaving the world’s greatest football team as his legacy.

I had a fun opportunity to view this film prior to its release in the theaters. My children love soccer so they watched it with me. It's a heartwarming movie which is predictable and slow at times but still fun to watch. The English accents made it a little difficult for my children to understand some of what was said but they caught the gist of it. 

The young actors are adorable and there are some parts that were pretty funny and made all of us laugh. Sir Matt Busby's story is interesting and sad. Having lost many of his players in a plane crash led him to question why he survived so it was good to see him realize the value he was able to give a group of young boys. This is a wonderful family movie that all ages will enjoy!!
