Captivating performances abound in this gripping drama detailing Hungarian actor and star personality Győző Szabó’s epic clash with hard-nosed psychiatrist Dr. Imre Csemus on his journey to overcome addiction and reclaim his life. Just as Győző’s career is soaring, his personal life plummets precipitously – and only one thing, or one person, can save him. But in his dogmatic effort to save his narcissistic patient, will the doctor’s own ego take him down as well? Adapted from the actor’s memoir.

Puskás Hungary

  Tamas Almasi

  Hungary      2009    

Synopsis

Legendary footballer Ferenc Puskás was many things—a superstar player for Real Madrid, captain of the Magical Hungarians, a globetrotting political exile, and a soccer genius whose life reflected Europe’s tumultuous postwar history. Puskás Hungary utilizes breathtaking footage of legendary 1950 – 60s matches and interviews with the people who knew him best to paint a complex portrait of the international soccer sensation and the era in which he lived.
