HOOLIGANS

TFF 2004
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE HOOLIGANS [TFF 2004]

Who is more macho, Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez or Lexi Alexander? In Hooligans, female director Alexander brings to the screen the rough and tumble world of British football "hooliganism"-fistfights, nasty pranks, and bloodletting between warring football fan gangs. After being wrongfully expelled from Harvard, Matt (Elijah Wood) takes off for London to stay with his married sister, Shannon (Claire Forlani). He quickly falls in with Shannon's brother-in-law, Pete (Charlie Hunnam), who is firmly entrenched in this warring world. Pete and his friends make up the Green Street Elite-one of London's toughest football "firms." Matt is quickly thrown fists first into the world of these charismatic hooligans who test his loyalty, friendship, and honor. But he is not welcomed with open arms by all of the firm's members, many of them resent the Yank stepping on their turf, and don't trust him or his private past. When one of his enemies discovers hidden information about Matt, it sets off a violent and tragic series of events. Wood makes an amazingly well crafted transition from lost college kid to loyal brother-in-arms.

About the Director(s)

A former World Karate and Kickboxing Champion, Lexi Alexander found her calling to become a filmmaker while traveling around the world competing and teaching martial arts seminars. Originally from Mannheim, Germany, Alexander moved to Los Angeles to study filmmaking and supported herself as a stuntwoman specializing in martial arts. Her short films, Pitcher Perfect, about the struggle of a teenage baseball prodigy, and Foolproof, a teen comedy, opened the door to a number of commercial assignments, most notably for extreme sports companies. After co-producing her first feature film Wheelmen, Alexander combined her extensive knowledge of boxing with her passion for filmmaking in her third short film, the 2003 Academy Award nominated Johnny Flynton, the true story of a boxer who was accused of murdering his wife and convicted on circumstantial evidence.
