Directed by Paul Crowder and John Dower



It is a thrilling tale of how a powerful group of entertainment moguls, a scrappy team of rag-tag athletes and a city in need of a rousing boost pulled together to create a phenomenon that in turn forged the soccer moms of today. Narrated by Academy Award-nominee Matt Dillon, Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos reveals how the Cosmos rose from total anonymity to become the hottest ticket in town -- taken under the wing of Warner Bros. Chairman Steve Ross, beloved by rock stars and fashionistas -- only to be overwhelmed by a wild world of wealth, groupies, rivalries and power struggles.
