Next goal wins follows the infamously terrible American Samoa soccer team, known for a brutal 2001 FIFA match they lost 31-0. With the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers approaching, the team hires down-on-his-luck, maverick coach hopes he will turn the world’s worst soccer team around in this humorous and heartfelt underdog story.

  • Information about screenings with descriptive subtitles

    Descriptive subtitles, sometimes referred to as subtitles for D/deaf and hard-of-hearing people or captions, transcribe dialogue and relevant aspects of the soundtrack, including music and sound effects, attempting to give D/deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers an equal experience to those who can watch films without descriptive subtitles. Descriptive subtitles would include speech identifiers and descriptive elements such as [door slamming] and [kettle whistling].

  • BBFC rating information (may contain spoilers)


    A man has aggressive outbursts on the soccer pitch in various scenes. There is also slapstick violence when a mother occasionally strikes her son with a sandal.


    There is infrequent use of strong language (‘f**k’), accompanied by other milder terms (‘bitch’, ‘shit’, ‘ass’, ‘asshole’, ‘piss’, ‘crap’, ‘bullshit’, ‘screw’, ‘Jesus’, ‘Christ’, ‘God’, ‘hell’ and ‘damn’).


    A tattoo contains a shape suggestive of a penis. A man appears in a few scenes with several pairs of breasts that have been drawn onto his face and head.


    Some scenes contain instances of transphobic behaviour, such as a man purposefully misgendering a trans woman during an argument leading to a physical altercation – for which he later apologises. Discussions about a trans woman’s identity are sometimes handled clumsily by certain characters, but the work as a whole clearly condemns discrimination of this kind.

    Injury detail

    An injured man briefly appears in the background of a scene with something protruding from his torso and blood on his clothes.


    There are occasional references to bereavement, which sometimes result in emotional upset.

    Alcohol and tobacco

    An alcoholic is seen pouring small bottles into a plastic cup, even when driving.

  • What is a dementia supportive screening ?

    Dementia-supportive screenings in association with Teesside Dementia Link Services are designed to make the experience of attending certain screenings at ARC easier for people living with dementia.TDLS staff members will be in attendance at these screenings to support those living with dementia with ticket purchases, finding their way to their seats, and providing a welcoming environment. If you would like to attend the screenings and require an essential companion such as a support worker to attend with you, you can also take advantage of our companion ticket scheme – providing your essential companion with a free ticket to attend the screening with you. These screenings will run without reduced sound levels, and the cinema lighting will go to full dark during the film. If screenings with reduced sound and higher light levels would better meet your access requirements please see ARC’s relaxed screenings for those living with dementia on Thursday afternoons.
