Netflix UK is now streaming The Pass, Russell Tovey’s acclaimed gay football drama based on John Donnelly’s hit play of the same name.
The film shows three very different nights over 10 years in the life of a Premier League Footballer.
Jason (Tovey) is at the beginning of his career, and on the night before his first big international match he and long-time friend and team-mate Ade (Arinze Kene) share a hotel room.
While the pair are trying to beat the inevitable pre-match tensions with locker-room banter and teenage high-jinks, Jason suddenly kisses Ade.
The emotional repercussions of this pass, and the decisions that follow on and off the pitch, have a major impact on every aspect of the public and private lives of both men across the next decade, in a sporting world where image is everything.
The cast includes Hollyoaks heart-throb Nico Mirallegro and theatre and TV actress Lisa McGrillis.
Tovey, McGrillis and Mirallegro all reprise the roles they originally performed on stage.
