Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St.) will present the historical drama THE KEEPER
from Friday, November 27 through Monday, November 30.
Based upon the life of German professional soccer player Bert Trautmann (David Kross),
the movie follows Trautmann’s capture by English forces while paratrooping in France
during World War II. Now a prisoner of war, the English discover the man’s talent for
sports. He is not exactly welcomed by many of the Brits, though, and faces incredible
prejudice and hostility as the English public assume that Trautmann is loyal to the Nazi
Party. Starring alongside Kross are Freya Mavor, John Henshaw, Dave Johns, Harry
Melling, and Michael Socha.
THE KEEPER was awarded "Best Production" at the 2019 BAVARIAN FILM
AWARDS. The movie was also nominated for "Best Feature" at the HAMBURG FILM
THE KEEPER will play on Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28 at 4:00 and
7:00, Sunday, November 29 at 1:00 and 4:00, and Monday, December 30 at 7:00.
