Two young Premier League footballers share a hotel room the night before a key match. Out of nowhere, one kisses the other. The emotional impact of this “pass” plays out through the next ten years of their lives – a decade of success and failure, secrets and lies, in a sporting world where image is everything.
Tense, claustrophobic and richly emotional, The Pass stars Russell Tovey (who we fell in love with on HBO’s “Looking“), Arinze Kene, Lisa McGrillis and Nico Mirallegro. The film marks the feature-length directorial debut of Ben A. Williams and was written by John Donnelly, based on his own stage play of the same name.
