Based on David Peace's book, The Damned United portrays the tempestuous 44 days that forthright Brian Clough (Michael Sheen) spent as manager of Leeds United. After alienating the side's star players and a string of awful results, 'Cloughie' was given the boot, but that's just half the story!

Brian Clough was one of a kind.

In 1974, Clough was already a renowned figure, just as much for his dynamic personality as for his fantastic managerial ability. Having led Derby County to the first league victory in their history, Clough left in a cloud of controversy and, after a brief spell at Brighton, found himself in the Leeds United hotseat after Don Revie's departure for the England job. What followed was the most incredible 44 days of football management!

Great film that gives a raw look at English football in 70's. It also a well acted and gripping drama in its own right. Plus, most (but not all) of the story is true. Recommended.

Brilliant movie. Dont have to like footie to appreciate this.

Guy playing Clough got it down to a tee.

Thanks for the above comments.
I'm a bit gay as I don't like football but my missus wants to see this film as she loooooves Mr Sheen (the actor, not the cleaning product) so I'm glad it's a gripping film for us gays and Sheen lovers.
Heat n rep added.

Superb film!

Bargain at £2.99 well worth a viewing!!

Great price for a great film - helps that Cloughie was such a character

One of the most compelling on screen characters I've ever seen. Mr Sheen is superb in the part! Highly recommended!

I agree. Not completely factually accurate, but a great film. And I have no interest in football, either.
