Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK. Highlighting the impact multiple sclerosis has on a young sportsman and his loved ones, Go Now is a heart-wrenching, intense and unforgettable film from 1995, and it comes to DVD 20 years after it was originally broadcast by the BBC, courtesy of Simply Media.

Starring an outstanding cast with Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting) in the lead role, directed by BAFTA winner Michael Winterbottom (The Trip) and written by the multi-award-winning Jimmy McGovern (The Street) and Paul Henry Powell (The Vice). The BAFTA winning film arrives on DVD 12th September 2016, accompanied by an exclusive special feature with footballer Danny Wallace talking about his own experiences suffering with MS. Simply Media is collaborating with The MS Society UK and will be donating £1 per DVD sold to the charity.

Construction worker and keen amateur footballer Nick Cameron (Carlyle) has the best of everything when he meets and moves in with soulmate Karen (Juliet Aubrey - The Constant Gardener). But complications arise when symptoms of a mysterious illness including numbness and double vision begin to sap his energy. As MS sets in, his physical powers quickly diminish and he loses his job, his sport and his sexual drive.

Eroded by frustration, anger and self-pity, Nick lashes out at Karen, even accusing her of sleeping with her boss. At his lowest ebb, summoning vestiges of pride and self-sacrifice, Nick urges Karen to leave him. Will she accept an easy escape from his despondency and rancour, or stand by this frail shell of the man she fell in love with?

The electrifying central performances are supported by engaging early screen appearances from James Nesbitt (Cold Feet) and Sophie Okonedo (Undercover).

Blending raw emotion with laddish dark humour, Go Now was originally broadcast on the BBC in 1995 and won a BAFTA for Best Editing and writers Jimmy McGovern and Paul Henry Powell - who drew on his own experiences battling MS - shared the Royal Television Society's Best Writer award.

  • An exclusive 10 minute interview with footballer Danny Wallace talking about his experiences suffering from MS
