Jason and Ade (“Looking” star Russell Tovey and Arinze Kene) are nineteen. They’ve been in the academy of a famous London soccer club since they were eight, and now it’s the night before their first-ever game as professionals.
Though they should be sleeping, the boys find themselves over-excited. They exercise, fight, laugh, and talk. And then, suddenly, Jason kisses Ade. In the high-profile sporting world where image is everything, this surprising pass sets the men up for a contrasting decade of fame and failure, full of secrets, denial and sensual secret encounters.
Based on a stage play and featuring terrific performances, The Pass is a relentlessly sexy and deeply heartfelt examination of sports, friendship and homoerotic tension.
