A Shot at Glory ()

directed by
featuring Robert Duvall, Michael Keaton, Brian Cox, Cole Hauser

Robert Duvall dons tartan and a thick brogue to star as Gordon McLeod, the manager of a failing Scottish football club. The second-division club -- dubbed Kilnockie after the fishing town it calls home -- has a new owner, an American named Pete Cameron (Michael Keaton), who pressures McLeod to spruce up the faltering club and, against McLeod's wishes, hires first-division star Jackie McQuillan (real-life footy luminary Ally McCoist). McQuillan's past days of glory came with a price, as his flashy lifestyle and volatile temperament cost him both his career and wife Kate (Kirsty Mitchell), who is none other than McLeod's own daughter. In the tradition of sports dramas from Hoosiers to Major League, A Shot at Glory sees the rag-tag team -- which also includes a talented American goalkeeper (Cole Hauser) -- put aside their differences for the love of the game, ultimately leading Kilnockie to a climactic match against the legendary Glasgow Rangers .
