Directed by George Clooney, Leatherheads is a movie about an enterprising football player who convinces America’s ace college football hero to play from his team’s end and keep the league from sinking.
A mixture of sports and romantic comedy, Clooney stars as Dodge, a brash and handsome gridiron giant who is equally comfortable leading his team in a barroom brawl or charging for a touchdown in a packed stadium. However, when Dodge’s team loses their sponsor, their league seems to be falling down the hill.
Clooney, with hopes to save his team, decides to convince Carter, an ace football player to join their team. Carter single-handedly forced the surrender of multiple German soldiers during the World War I. He had the goodwill of being America’s favourite son. His unparalleled speed was one of his biggest asset as an athlete.
