Synopsis

Imagine if your idol became your life-coach. That's exactly what happens to Eric Bishop, a middle-aged postman from Manchester, who's struggling to bring up his two teenage step-sons - one of whom gets mixed up with a city gang. One night, when Eric's talking to a poster of his hero, ex-footballing legend Eric Cantona, the poster not only responds, but comes to life. Ken Loach, one of Britain's most-respected directors, is best known for gritty social realism, but this charming fantasy shows he has a great sense of humour too.
