He was football’s first rock and roll star – a handsome, charismatic Belfast boy who could thrill and excite the crowds with every turn of the ball.
But George Best was also the lead in his own Shakespearean tragedy, a flawed genius, brought down by drink, temptation and depression. Director Daniel Gordon recounts the tale of this beloved but be-devilled superstar with riveting, evocative footage and testimony by those who knew him at his best—and worst.
