No England team rose higher...
and fell harder
The Edge Film 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, The Edge Film explores the ruthless intensity of the game, the impact it can have on players’ mental health and the extreme price of success.
This is test cricket like you've never seen it before.
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 since ICC records began. Captain Andrew Strauss and coach Andy Flower took over a team including some of the true greats of the English game and transformed them into a phenomenal winning machine before the pressure and scrutiny began to fracture mind, body and soul.
The team helped redefine what success meant.
Featuring incredible unseen footage from the period and compelling new interviews from star players and coaching staff including: Andrew Strauss, Kevin Pietersen, Sir Alastair Cook, James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, Jonathan Trott and Andy Flower, The Edge Film reveals the team’s intense and often hilarious pursuit of success.View full cast
