345. Diego Maradona - Leaving Cert 2023 (#---)
Hosted by Andrew Quinn, Darren Mooney and Conor Murphy, this week with special guest Ross Whitaker, The 250 is a weekly trip through some of the best (and worst) movies ever made, as voted for by Internet Movie Database Users. New episodes are released Saturdays at 6pm GMT.
This September, we are running a season looking at the films on the Irish Leaving Cert English Curriculum. So this week, Asif Kapadia's Diego Maradona.
In 1984, Argentinian footballer Diego Maradona transfers from F.C. Barcelona to S.S.C. Napoli. Less than a decade later, he will leave the club and the city under a cloud of controversy. In those intervening years, Maradona is everything: hero, villain, saviour, devil, man, legend. Is it possible to make sense of all the contradictions that bind the legendary footballer together?
At time of recording, it was not ranked on the list of the best movies of all time on the Internet Movie Database.
