Michael Sheen stars in this dramatisation of Brian Clough's disastrous 44-day stint as the coach of Leeds United, based on the acclaimed novel by David Peace.
From the outset, Clough (Sheen) does little to disguise his contempt for the club, its players, and former club manager Don Revie (Colm Meaney).
As the relationship between players and manager deteriorates, so do the team's performances on the pitch, leading to Clough's dismissal by the Leeds directors.
Timothy Spall and Jim Broadbent co-star.
