Looking for Eric

Friday, May 14 - Thursday, June 3, 2010

Loach’s (IFC Center hit The Wind that Shakes the Barley) unexpectedly buoyant comedy centers upon a Manchester soccer fan at the end of his rope. His stepsons are out of control, his second marriage is in ruins, a car accident lands him in the hospital, and he aches for the wife he left thirty years earlier. In desperation, he turns to his idol, French soccer genius and philosopher Eric Cantona. And with Cantona’s enigmatic advice on life and love for inspiration, he vows to get things back on track.
