About this movie

Between 2009 and 2013, 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. The Edge is a compelling, funny and emotional insight into a band of brothers' rise to the top, their unmatched achievements and the huge toll it would take. One of the toughest sports on the planet, and psychologically perhaps the most challenging, this is test cricket like you've never seen it before. 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. Featuring incredible unseen footage from the period and compelling 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, The Edge will reveal the team's intense and often hilarious pursuit of success.

Amazing footage and insight. Loses one star as the chronological narrative should be clearer for those who don't remember how events unfolded at the time.
