Featuring interviews with former players, Matthew narrates the feature-length documentary, which has been described as the “story of sacrifice, glory and the agonising pursuit of a legacy” of his hometown team. Despite being all about rugby, director Lee Hicken reassured the City Talking that the documentary isn’t just for the sport’s biggest fans but for anyone who enjoys stories of adversity and overcoming challenges as well:
This is not just a film about Rugby League for Rugby League fans. It is a story about a group of individuals who were confronted with incredible challenges and achieved incredible things. We can’t wait to share this film, and the untold stories of these brilliant individuals, with new audiences from around the world.
As Good As It Gets? premieres at the Leeds International Film Festival on April 30 and will be available on Amazon Prime in early May. Check out the trailer below!
