A man trying to put his life back on track gets some advice from an unexpected benefactor in this comedy-drama from acclaimed British director Ken Loach. Eric Bishop (Steve Evets) is a postman living in Manchester whose life has been slowly going off the rails ever since his wife Lily (Stephanie Bishop) walked out on him. Eric has just been released from the hospital after an auto accident, and comes home to a house that's a mess and two teenage sons, Ryan (Gerard Kearns) and Jess (Stefan Gumbs), who regard their dad as an annoyance rather than an authority figure. Eric's oldest child, a grown daughter named Sam (Lucy-Jo Hudson), loves him but can't get her mother or brothers to show him any respect. And his friends from work don't know what to do for him, except allow him to talk about football and his favourite team, Manchester United. One night, Eric is home alone, smoking some weed, and to his amazement he's visited by an apparition of Eric Cantona, the French footballer who was a star for Manchester United in the 1990s until he retired and dropped out of sight. Cantona's ghost has come to give Eric a pep talk and offer him some advice on how to win Lily back, and as Eric tries to convince his wife to give him another chance, Cantona periodically appears to coach him in the ways of romance. LOOKING FOR ERIC was an official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.


switched this off halfway thru absolute rubbish. why would you bother wasting money on bluray for this, no special effects etc... stick to dvd version

This is a bargain! Bought this on normal dvd for nearly double the price. Can't wait to see Cantona in HD!

cold as erics in it

Oh behave; I'm City through and through, but Cantona is in a different league. Was a great player and a total dude; albeit a mad one

Absolutely brilliant Ken Loach film, you don't have to like football or Cantona to appreciate this movie.

The DVD would be fine, I doubt Blu Ray is going to make you appreciate the film more.

I agree it is a film united fans would like more due to cantina but there us more of a story to this than the first half of it suggests the wife hates football but she did enjoy this film, great deal and a great film if you give it a chance

Obviously that was meant to say cantona!!!!

i am not a man i am CANTONA:thumbsup:


Thought I would give it ago.

Great footballer, rubbish film. I almost walked out of the cinema when I went to watch this film, picks up a bit in the last 15 minutes but before that its rubbish.
