It’s know as the beautiful game. But let’s face it, guys, it’s a complicated game. It’s like life”
Imagine being the laughingstock in the world of international football. This film tells the story of the American Samoa soccer team, who suffered the worst loss in World Cup history, losing to Australia 31-0 in 2001. With the 2014 World Cup approaching, the team recruits a down on his luck, maverick coach to help turn their fate around. Taika Waititi directs and performs in this film about the American Samoa Soccer team starring Michael Fassbinder, Elizabeth Moss, and Will Arnett, Kaimana and Frankie Adams.
