Noah Media Group proudly presents the first look at Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager – the definitive film about the life and career of revered football manager Sir Bobby Robson. Directed by Gabriel Clarke and Torquil Jones, the film is released in select cinemas from 31st May and will be available via Digital Download/Curzon Home Cinema on 1st June and DVD/Blu-Ray on 4th June.
Starring an A-list cast (Ferguson, Mourinho, Guardiola, Ronaldo, Gascoigne, Shearer, Lineker, Butcher) never-before-seen archive footage and emotional testimony from Lady Elsie Robson, this is an intimate portrait of one of sport’s most inspirational and influential figures.
Covering a career that saw some of the greatest moments in footballing history; the hand of God, Gazza’s tears, England’s greatest World Cup abroad, titles in Europe’s top leagues, European triumph with Ipswich Town and a Barcelona treble, this heartfelt and personal film is led by the intimate recollections of Sir Bobby Robson himself.
During an extraordinary career, in which Robson overcame the most extreme challenges, including battles with cancer, his journey came full circle when he returned to save his beloved Newcastle.
Ahead of its release the film will receive three special stadium screenings at Wembley Stadium, London (23rd May), St James’ Park, Newcastle (22nd May) and Portman Road, Ipswich (25th May) in honour of the footballing giant and in support of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, which raises money to find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.
