The Phantom of the Open

The remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer 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 heart-warming 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. An uplifting and moving comedy-drama about pursuing your dreams and shooting for the stars, no matter what hand you’re dealt.

Directed by Craig Roberts
Starring Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins & Rhys Ifans

★★★★ "A quirky Britcom with bite and soul." TIMES UK
★★★★ "Rylance is excellent — striding on to the green of his new Jerusalem with just those cut-price clubs and his destiny." FINANCIAL TIMES
