The Penalty King

2006, 90 minutes

The first surreal British football comedy where a blind man returns to the game via his psychotic local pub team.

Life was sweet for Lee Vaughan: money, respect, sex and . . . football. <P> Ah yes, The Beautiful Game - well at least the version played by The Fox and Hounds, Chapel Allerton. Lee was the top scorer in 1992. <P> But not a single goal in '93. <P> Glaucoma. It struck him down. Within two years he was totally blind. His only glory from memories. <P> But memories don't satisfy the need for a 'damn good kickabout.' <P> Into Lee's life comes one Charlie Howard. His life is a mess - he kind of likes it that way. <P> Twenty years ago he saw 'Get Carter' and left the USA for the UK. And there he meets a blind man yearning to play this thing they call soccer. <P> Charlie is bored. Charlie is looking for a craic. <P> Looks like he's found one.
