Green Street" is an award-winning and exhilarating story of friendship, loyalty and honour.
American student Matt Buckner (Elijah Wood) heads to London after he is unfairly expelled from Harvard. Befriended by the charming but dangerous Pete Dunham, Matt enters the violent world of football hooliganism and the secrecy and intrigue of the football firm.
Pete Dunham and his close knit group of friends make up the Green Street Elite (GSE), a hard core group of West Ham United supporters and one of the toughest London football firms. They have one aim - to be the most feared and respected mob in the country - no matter what it takes.
Matt is not only drawn into the sheer excitement of the game of football itself, but also to the brotherhood and loyalty of life inside the G

* The West Ham firm in the film is called the Green Street Elite (GSE). The real-life West Ham firm is called the Inter City Firm (ICF), so called because of the firms use of the Inter City trains to travel to away matches.
* Charlie Hunnam, who plays the part of Pete Dunham, has received criticism for his attempt at a Cockney accent. Whatever part of London he may be trying to sound like in the film, Hunnam's northern roots — he is a native of Newcastle — manage to show through.
* The South London Press reported that (then Millwall manager) Dennis Wise, had heavily fined and suspended two of his players for attending the film's premiere.
* Terence Jay, who played Matt Buckner's (Elijah Wood) roommate, also wrote and performed several of the film's soundtracks. He is also the producer Deborah de Prete's son.
* The first game in the film showed West Ham at home to Birmingham City F.C.. The action on the pitch, however, was played out between players of West Ham and Gillingham F.C.
* Burnley's Jon Harley makes an appearance playing for West Ham in the first game.
* Although not a remake, the premise is very similar to the 1995 British-made film ID, in which the unlikely inductee to the world of football violence is an undercover police officer. Unlike ID which used fictional names, Green Street uses real club names and locations.
* Claire Forlani, who is English, plays an American in the film.

"I'm forever blowing bubbles, pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high, nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams they fade and die,
Fortune's always hiding, I've looked everywhere,
I'm forever blowing bubbles, pretty bubbles in the air"
United! (clap hands) United! (clap hands) United! (clap hands)

In the far away fires
Where the hills forever burn
At the feet of our heroes
We try hard to learn
But the lesson is lost there
In the smoke and the mud
That we are one flesh, one breath, one life, one blood
I stood by the river
That ran red with shame
I stood in the killing fields
Where death had no name
I stood with my brothers
And away it flood
And we where one flesh, one breath, one life, one blood
Then I felt to the ground
Tasted ashes on my tongue
Thinking that only the death
Are forever young
There was peace in the twilight
And for a moment among
It was a world without danger
A world without war
And I will take all your suffering
It will do any good
Cause we are one flesh, one breath, one life, one blood
