Russell Tovey plays a footballer hiding his sexuality in new trailer for The Pass

Two footballers. One hotel room. And a kiss that changes everything


Being Human and Banished star Russel Tovey is back in action as a closeted footballer in the new trailer for upcoming film, The Pass.


Tovey and Arine Kene play two players who share a kiss that changes their lives, the night before one of their biggest games.

That kiss happens on the first of three important nights on which we meet the men, as we follow their story across the next decade.

The film is based on John Donnelly’s hit play of the same name, and he’s the one who has adapted it for the big screen.


The Pass will be screened at this year’s London BFI Film Festival, before going on general UK release in December.
