A school-daze crowd-pleaser and award-winner at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival, The Liverpool Goalie takes us into the suburban world of 13-year-old Jo. The cautious, studious kid (Ask van der Hagen) treads a careful path through the disaster-prone world of middle school, until The New Girl, a spitfire named Mari, catches his eye. Director Arild Andresen’s peppy bio sends wide-eyed Jo through increasingly madcap adventures that show growing pains in action.
