Russell Tovey’s gay football drama The Pass is coming to DVD next month and is now available to pre-order from Amazon.co.uk.
Adapted for the screen by John Donnelly from his hit play, 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, trying to beat the inevitable pre-match tensions with locker-room banter and teenage high-jinks. Out of nowhere Jason 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.
The Pass arrives on DVD April 10th – pre-order from Amazon.co.uk.
