Next Goal Wins - Fassbender and Taika Waititi

Based on the true story documentary.

Looks like a rote feel-good flick, and frankly, I’m all in.

IMDb link is to the 2014 original (which confused me as I browsed the cast and crew and saw none of the above!)

I found something about the tone of the trailer really really offputting and I can’t quite put my finger on what.

I’ve known all about this story for awhile and props to American Samoa and all that (they really did move a long way from the 31-0 defeat/the country that scored twice in international matches in a decade). But Rongen has been such an insipid and bad soccer commentator it makes me not care.
