Who would have thought that rugby could be so emotional.
A beautifully shot microcosm of gay life - in all its splendour, camaraderie, campery and bitchiness - with the added bonus of mud...lots of it.
There are the usual tales of bullying, rejection, being lost...and found - with a little help from a rough, tough contact sport.
You will laugh. You will cry. You will wallow - with these men - in the mud.
It's a - surprisingly - damn good film. Ms Stockwell has a fine eye and a future.

Our only complaint, The Bingham Cup is wrought with emotion - Mark Bingham lost his life in the 9/11 attacks. Perhaps, it was fitting to say a little more about how the competition came about - it's just a little too cursory.


The(ir) Blurb...

A Canadian jock, a fat Irish backpacker and a stoic Japanese outsider united by their love of rugby come together under a determined Australian coach to vie for a position in the gay rugby world cup.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
