‘Looking For Eric’: The Return Of Cantona As Actor

first_imgBy Dialogo May 18, 2009 Cantona is great in that Rennolt advert as well. His part in Elizabeth, I think, has given him a foothold as an actor. Temperamental but lavishly talented French footballer Eric Cantona — about to play film-star at Cannes — is still worshipped in part of northwest England 12 years after leaving Manchester United to retire abruptly at 31. So strong is his abiding love for Manchester that Cantona has formed an unlikely alliance with gritty British director Ken Loach, putting himself and the city at the heart of Cannes film festival contender “Looking for Eric”, which screens there Monday. Cantona, who has acted in a handful of films, plays himself, appearing like a vision to help a Manchester postman, also named Eric, a devoted United fan whose life is spinning out of control. “I like the way it’s so real, like documentary. And I like how you don’t know if you have to laugh or cry,” Cantona told the Guardian newspaper this month. While film critics have been lukewarm about Cantona’s acting career so far, in Manchester at least the mention of his name is still enough to stir emotion in United fans. Twelve years after his sudden departure, red, white and blue French Tricolores still fly in the roads leading to United’s imposing Old Trafford stadium. In fish and chip shops, Cantona’s photograph hangs alongside yellowing pictures of the club’s legendary players like George Best and Bobby Charlton. T-shirts proclaim 1966 as a “great year for English football” — not because it was when England won their first and still their only World Cup, but because it was the year “Eric was born”. “We still sell this T-shirt and we still sell the flags,” said souvenir seller Craig Ashton. Cantona, with his trademark turned-up collar on his jersey and his willingness to defy referees and football’s London-based authorities, was different. “He brought his arrogance to the game,” Ashton said. Characteristically, Cantona moved to England after falling out with French football authorities. He made his mark with Leeds United, another club in northern England, helping them to win the then First Division before a 1.2 million pound move to Manchester United in November 1992. In his first season, United won their first league championship for 26 years as they triumphed in the inaugural Premier League. The Frenchman helped them retain their title in 1994 but missed a chunk of the 1994-1995 season after infamously leaping in to the crowd during a match at London club Crystal Palace and launching a ‘kung fu’ kick at an abusive fan. But rather than alienating his fans, Cantona’s moment of madness in 1995 endeared him to them — even after he was handed a lengthy suspension. “We loved him even more,” recalls Steven Rose, who sells the “United We Stand” fanzine. In his comeback game, Cantona scored a penalty and United’s fans broke into a chorus of: “We’ll drink a drink a drink/ to Eric the King the King the King. “What a friend we have in Jesus/He’s a saviour from afar/What a friend we have in Jesus/And his name is Cantona/Ooh Aah Cantona”. When Cantona chose to walk away at his peak in 1997, he won fresh respect by depriving any other club of his services. “Even in the last days, he decided to retire. He just decided that was it. He walked away from the game. You have to admire him for that,” said Ashton. Or, as Ivan Ponting, the author of a handful of books on Manchester United, put it, Cantona was “an uncontrollable free spirit, a capricious bird of passage who would never linger.”last_img read more

NCUA shows support for Network Credit Union mergers

first_img 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The top leaders of the National Credit Union Administration said Tuesday that they support an alternative option that would allow credit unions to merge some operations.The agency’s general counsel issued a legal opinion last week that said credit unions are allowed under the Federal Credit Union Act to merge by forming a Network Credit Union.Under the concept, credit unions could achieve economies of scale by merging some functions such as IT or a call center while maintaining their own names and some level of autonomy.Speaking at the Credit Union National Association’s Government Affairs Conference, NCUA Vice Chairman Richard Metsger said giving credit unions that option was one of his 2016 priorities.“Building on the Network Credit Union concept…I will work to remove roadblocks to credit unions who wish to come together under the umbrella of one stronger charter, but who continue to operate under their own identities in their communities, seamless to their members, but now with added resources and reduced compliance and regulatory burden at the local level,” Metsger said.Speaking to Credit Union Journal at the conference, NCUA Chair Debbie Matz said “it is something that can be tried, so now the ball is in the court of the credit unions that are interested.” continue reading »last_img read more

Ms. Darling-Hammond, a veteran education researcher and policymaker in arenas like desegregation, school finance and teacher preparation, was considered a contender for Mr. Biden’s secretary of education, but took herself out of the running, saying she was committed to her work in California.The transition team’s strong representation from former Obama-era officials and teachers unions has been met with mixed reactions.In announcing the team, a transition official said its members had “deep backgrounds in key policy areas” with “a diversity of perspectives critical to addressing America’s most urgent and complex challenges.”- Advertisement – “There’s a lot of work to be done, but it will be nice to know there’s an education secretary who’s thinking about how to protect students from predatory schools instead of the other way around,” said Aaron Ament, the president of the National Student Legal Defense Network, which has sued the department for its efforts to roll back Obama-era rules on loan forgiveness and consumer protection.The team Mr. Biden has named to help the Education Department through the transition signaled the direction he intends to take.- Advertisement –center_img Keri Rodrigues, the president of the National Parents Union, which represents low-income parents and parents of color, said the composition of the team made her worried that the Biden administration might stack the government with people who are “interested in fortifying the status quo that has been failing so many of our kids.”“This is the biggest table right now,” she said of the transition team, “and I don’t see parent groups, family groups, community groups present.” She added, “It seems we’re back to the same old, ‘We’re going to do things to you, not with you.’”last_img read more
