In conjunction with the 11mm — Fussballfilmfestival, the #FIFAMuseum is delighted to show the gripping documentary of the life of George Best.
If ever there was a footballer who earned the epithet «flawed genius», it was George Best. The Northern Ireland legend was a wizard on the pitch and charismatic off it, where he was always to be found with a drink in his hand and a pretty woman or two on his arm. In the end, the flaws – notably the alcohol – got the better of the genius.
Director Daniel Hill's documentary shows the adulation that Best inspired in Manchester United fans at Old Trafford even as a 17-year-old, as well as his wild side outside of football, and finally his emotional burial back in his native Belfast, where over 100,000 mourners filled the streets.
