eOne has released a bunch of new clips from this week’s brilliant, feel-good pic The Phantom Of The Open, a film I absolutely loved and recommend to all. Mark Rylance leads the cast as Maurice Flitcroft who, back in 1976, entered the British golf open, despite not having played the sport professionally before.
You can read my full review at the end of the link above, but, honestly, most will get something out of the movie.
The synopsis is as follows:
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN tells the remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer from Barrow-in-Furness who, with the support of his family and friends, managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open qualifying, despite never playing a round of golf before. With pluckiness and unwavering self-belief, Maurice pulls off a series of stunning, hilarious and heartwarming attempts to compete at the highest level of professional golf, drawing the ire of the golfing elite but becoming a British folk hero in the process.
Check out three new clips from the film below. The Phantom Of The Open hits UK cinemas on 18th March.
