film synopsis

Tommy Morris and his father Tom Morris were the real-life founders of the modern game of golf. But the story behind their triumph, beautifully told in this warm, expansive period piece, involves much more than sport. Morris the elder (Peter Mullan), the greens keeper at St Andrews in Scotland, and his ambitious, rebellious son (Jack Lowden), who became known as the greatest golfer of the 19th century, were an unbeatable team, but they had radically different visions. Tom accepted his subservient "place" in the rigid Victorian class system. The ambitious Tommy fought for equality, standing up to the "gentlemen" at the club who profited off his labors. And when he fell in love with a woman his parents didn't approve of, he refused to buckle to conventional morality.

Director Jason Connery, son of Sean, must know a thing or two about growing up in a father's shadow, and he brings his insight to bear in this little known tale of triumph and tragedy. The great Peter Mullan anchors the fine cast, which includes Sam Neill as Tommy's haughty upper-class nemesis.
