The creators behind ‘Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager’, ‘Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans’ and ‘Out Of Their Skin’ will be delving into the realms of the documentary yet again this time focusing on the England Test Cricket team and the strain it has on mental health in ‘The Edge’.
Directed by Barney Douglas (Warriors), the film explores the ruthless intensity of the game, the impact it can have on players’ mental health and the extreme price of success.
The documentary covers the period between 2009 and 2013 when the England Test cricket team rose from the depths of the rankings to become the first and only English side to reach world number one. It also features new interviews from star players and coaching staff including Andrew Strauss, Sir Alastair Cook, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott and Andy Flower and goes on to reveal the team’s intense and often hilarious pursuit of success.
The film will support Heads Together, a mental health initiative spearheaded by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which aims to change the national conversation on mental health.
