Based on the graphic novel of the same name, this witty modern take ont he romantic English pastorale is a far cry from Hardy's Wessex. Tamara Drewe's present-day English countryside - stocked with pompous writers, rich weekenders from London, bourgeois bohemians, a horny rock star, a great many Buff Orpington chickens and Belled Galloway cows - is a much funnier place.
Set in 1960's and 1970's England, THE DAMNED UNITED tells the confrontation and darkly humourous story of Brian Clough's doomed 44 day tenure as manager of the reigning champions of English football Leeds United. Previously managed by his bitter rival Don Revie, and on the back of their most successful period ever as a football club, Leeds was perceived by many to represent a new agressive and cynical style of football - an anathema to the principled yet flambouyant Brian Blough, who had achieved astonishing success as manager of Hartlepool and Derby County building teams in his own vision with trust lieutenant Peter Taylor. Taking the Leeds job without Taylor by his side, with a changing room full of what in his mind were still Don's boys, would lead to an unheralded examination of Clough's belligerence and brilliance over 44 days. This is that story. The story of The Damned United.
London 1818: a secret love affair begins between 23 year old English poet, John Keats, and the girl next door, Fanny Brawne, an outspoken student of fashion.

Keats was touched by Fanny's efforts to help and agreed to teach her poetry. By the time Fanny's alarmed mother and Keats's best friend Brown realised their attachment, the relationship had an unstoppable momentum. Intensely and helplessly absorbed in each other, the young lovers were swept into powerful new sensations, "I have the feeling as if I were dissolving", Keats wrote to her. Together they rode a wave of romantic obsession that deepened as their troubles mounted. Only Keats's illness proved insurmountable.
