The Pass will arrive on Download and DVD in April it has been confirmed.

Starring Russell Tovey (Looking) and Arinzé Kene, the film will be released on Digital Download on 3rd April 2017 followed by a DVD release on 10th April 2017. The film is directed by Ben A. Williams, who wrote the original stage play that premiered at the Royal Court Theatre.

The Pass tells the story of three very different nights over 10 years in the life of a Premier League Footballer. Jason (Russell Tovey) is at the beginning of his career, and on the night before his first big international match he and long-time friend and team-mate Ade (Arinze Kene) share a hotel room, trying to beat the inevitable pre-match tensions with locker-room banter and teenage high-jinks. Out of nowhere Jason kisses Ade. The emotional repercussions of this pass, and the decisions that follow on and off the pitch, have a major impact on every aspect of the public and private lives of both men across the next decade, in a sporting world where image is everything.

The cast includes Hollyoaks heart-throb Nico Mirallegro and theatre and TV actress Lisa McGrillis. Tovey, McGrillis and Mirallegro all reprise the roles they originally performed on stage.

Arinzé Kene’s performance also won Best Supporting Actor at the Evening Standard British Film Awards and earned a Best Supporting Actor nomination from BIFA.
