BORG Vs McENROE (15)

BORG Vs McENROE (15)

Running time: 110 minutes
Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Sverrir Gudnason, Stellan Skarsgård

It’s the summer of 1980 and Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) is the top tennis player in the world, dominating the sport both on and off the court. A powerful and rigorously disciplined player, there is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American, John McEnroe (a perfectly cast Shia LaBeouf).

With three days until the tournament begins, Borg trains religiously in his lavish Monaco home, aided by his coach and mentor Lennart (Stellan Skarsgård) and girlfriend Mariana (Tuva Novotny). But McEnroe’s explosive confidence and wrecking-ball persona continue to infiltrate Borg’s ice-cool and normally unshakable temperament. With each man the antithesis of the other, both players delve into their formative memories as the climactic tournament draws near and anticipation reaches fever pitch.

Visceral and breathlessly tense, the match itself - regarded as one of the greatest of all time - would mark the pinnacle of the ‘Fire and Ice’ rivalry between Borg and McEnroe; an exhilarating battle of personalities that set the world of tennis alight.

THE FLOYD EFFECT - TOWARDS THE DARK SIDE (AND BEYOND) TOUR

Having toured since 2007, The Floyd Effect is renowned for the remarkable accuracy with which it performs the iconic music of Pink Floyd.

All of the band members are top quality musicians with pedigrees that stretch across all manner of musical genres and they faithfully recreate the music and intensity of a Pink Floyd concert without recourse to backing tracks, racks of computers or other technical wizardry.

Every note that you hear is played and sung by the band, making each concert a genuine ‘live’ experience powerful, immersive and emotional. And, of course, the music is supported by a dramatic light show that incorporates the iconic circular screen, two sets of projections, smoke and lasers.

Performing its ‘Toward the Dark Side (and Beyond) tour, The Floyd Effect takes you on a musical journey from Meddle to the Dark Side of the Moon, through Wish You Were Here and The Wall to a Momentary Lapse of Reason and all the way to Division Bell.

Unless you were there the first time around, the music of Pink Floyd was never as real as this.
