Playing for Keeps (5-Dec-2012)

Director: Gabriele Muccino

Writer: Robbie Fox

Keywords: Romantic Comedy

A hard-luck ex-soccer player's plans to coach his son's soccer team as a way to put his life back together are complicated by romantic overtures from a variety of soccer moms.

George, a former professional soccer star, faces an existential crisis following the conclusion of the only career he's ever known. Left without a gainful hobby to pursue nor a steady source of income, he relocates to Virginia, looking to sort his life out by coaching his son's soccer team and reconnecting with his ex-wife. As he begins to draw the attention of soccer moms in his new community, however, George comes to realize that adjusting to a "normal" life may very well be a task easier said than done.
