The official Netflix synopsis paints a vivid picture of what to expect from this epic documentary:
“David Beckham, a name that reverberates across the globe, yet the enigma behind the legend remains shrouded in mystery. From his humble beginnings in the heart of East London’s working-class neighborhoods to his relentless pursuit of excellence and the unrelenting struggle to harmonize ambition, love, and family, David’s journey is a gripping narrative of monumental highs and challenging lows.”
“This series catapults viewers into an emotional whirlwind, weaving an unexpectedly intimate and definitively authentic tapestry of one of the most universally recognized and scrutinized athletes of all time.”
This groundbreaking documentary series, which was initially unveiled last year, is skillfully directed by none other than Fisher Stevens, an illustrious Oscar winner renowned for his directorial prowess in films such as “Before the Flood,” “The Cove,” and “Palmer.” At the helm of production is the esteemed Oscar winner John Battsek, celebrated for his involvement in acclaimed projects such as “The Imposter,” “One Day in September,” and “Searching for Sugar Man.”
Netflix proudly boasts that both Stevens and Battsek were granted unprecedented access to David Beckham, his spouse Victoria, their family, close-knit circle of friends, and fellow teammates. This unparalleled access allowed them to craft an “intimate portrait” of the man himself while simultaneously capturing the ever-evolving landscape of modern sports and celebrity culture.
“Beckham” comprises a thrilling quartet of episodes, each clocking in at a riveting 60 minutes, guaranteeing a deep dive into the remarkable life and career of David Beckham.
