The latest film from Academy Award winning filmmaker Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Hunt for the Wilderpeople), Next Goal Wins is a charming story of the infamously terrible American Samoa soccer team. With the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers approaching, the team hires down-on-his-luck, maverick coach Thomas Rongen (Michael Fassbender), hoping he will turn the world’s worst soccer team around. Like Waititi’s previous efforts, Next Goal Wins is full of lovably offbeat humour, and embraces all the weird and unpredictable things that make us human with remarkable insight and heart.
“Taika Waititi hits the back of the net with this winning, hilarious football comedy”
“Taika Waititi’s funny and feel-good underdog tale is extremely easy to warm to”
“A real crowd-pleaser”
Fun for all the family! With our entire country well and truly overcome by Matildas-induced football fever recently, Taika Waititi’s latest film couldn’t be better timed. We always have time for an inspiring underdog tale, and Next Goal Wins is a particularly sweet-natured and big-hearted one.
