‘Will’ (2011) is the name of an orphan who has had a rough childhood as you can imagine. His mother died just 3 years ago, and his father abandoned him after her death.
Will is a die hard Liverpool FC fan, it’s all he has left in life worth fighting for. After receiving two Liverpool tickets for the 2005 Champions League cup final in Istanbul, he embarks in a solo journey with many obstacles in his path as well as a friend he picks up in Paris.
It should be said though that this film does seem to turn away from realism. Receiving 9000 euros from a stranger who wants to make child’s dream come true, I mean come on. As well as his fathers tickets being fake as well as passing through many countries without a passport. But I don’t think it ever occurred to director Ellen Perry to be realistic. The film reminded me of the poetic documentary genre. Being subjective to many aspects, usually Liverpool FC. Ellen often uses archive footage of Liverpool goals and the Liverpool fans are presented as one huge family, a family that sticks together and would die for their club.
The appearance of Liverpool players and Dalgleish in this film was surprising and brought a smile to my face. I’m a die-hard Brighton & Hove Albion supporter, but towards the end of the climax, I was debating whether Brighton really was my team.
A heart warming film that has a poetic atmosphere around Liverpool FC, a great film for a football fan, a poor film for anyone else.

After watching Zodiac (2007) based on the investigation of the ‘zodiac’ killings during the 60’s and 70’s, it has only re-enforced my passion for owning a classic mustang car.
