Synopsis:The United Way is the epic story of a football club, a city and a man who did more than most to bring success to both. As told by, co-written and featuring Eric Cantona.
He was an artist on and off the pitch and remains today a genuine superstar. The peerless French maverick is our guide from the dark days of Munich through to a historic treble in 1999. And all of the drama in between. The film shares his unique insights into this iconic club with a fresh perspective on the “United Way”, taking audiences on a compelling ride through the history and evolution of the world’s biggest football club, and the social and cultural environment that shaped it.
Exclusive interviews and stunning archive interweave Eric’s story with that of the club.
We hear from a galaxy of United stars and stalwarts- such as David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Bryan Robson, Brian Kidd, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Teddy Sheringham, Nicky Butt, Peter Schmeichel, the late Tommy Docherty and many, many more- as well as era-defining figures from the realms of music and politics. From humble beginnings in England’s Industrial North at the turn of the 20th Century, Manchester United rose with defiance and flair through the smog of tragedy, adversity and despair to become a cultural colossus.
The United Way is at heart a story of the people. It is set against a background of four dynamic decades of change on and off the pitch. Lords Heseltine and Kinnock add socio-political context. Musicians Peter Hook and Shaun Ryder recall the ground-breaking sounds and styles, which, along with the football club, helped make Manchester a pioneering, swashbuckling cultural capital.
Set to the stirring score of five-time Oscar nominated, BAFTA-winning composer George Fenton, this is a cinematic journey to discover the soul of a football club, of a city, of a people.
This is The United Way.

I am but a small website in this big wide world. As much as I would love to make this website a big and wonderful entity. That would bring in more costs. So, for now all I hope is to make Upcoming On Screen self sufficient. Well enough to where any website fees are less of a worry for me in the future. You can support the website below…
