The maverick outsider who changed a nation forever.
A World Cup winner with England, he was one of football’s first true TV personalities, with an outspoken charm that stretched his profile far beyond the game. As a manager his success leading Ireland transformed not just football but a nation.
Directed by Gabriel Clarke and Pete Thomas, and shot on location in Ireland and England, the film also details Jack’s previously undocumented life with dementia. The documentary features key characters from throughout Jack’s career, including major figures in football, music, film, politics, and, for the first time, Jack’s family. These personal perspectives, along with previously unseen archive footage, are an intimate window into Jack’s charismatic personality, his managerial philosophy and offer a whole new level of understanding.
After hosting Clarke’s previous documentaries at The Odyssey with enormous success; it gives us great pleasure to bring Finding Jack Charlton to the big screen this December.

The screening on Saturday 5th at 7.15pm will feature an intro from the film’s Producer and local St Albans resident John McKenna who many will recognise from our screenings of The Edge last year, Bobby Robson: More than A Manager in 2018 and Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans from 2017. It’s become a yearly tradition for us so do not miss this one, in 2020!
