An independently-produced documentary called “Next Goal Wins” opens Friday in Los Angeles.
Ostensibly, it is about a ragtag team of lovable losers seeking to attain their collective dream of actually winning a game after a decade of losses including a world record 31-0 World Cup qualifying loss four years earlier.
But there is a larger story in play here in this sweet modest movie as I write in this week’s column.
Also, local soccer clubs and other groups can organize fundraising screenings of the movie. For more information, click here.
