YAH17 Tommy's Honour3rd April, 2017
Tommy’s Honour tells the true story of Tom Morris and his son Tommy, the real-life working-class founders of the modern game of golf. Morris Sr. (played with expressive dignity by Peter Mullan) is a groundskeeper and golf pro in Victorian Scotland, whose declining athletic ability is more than offset by his visionary golf course design ideas. Morris Jr. (a suitably brash and agile Jack Lowden) is something else again: a once-in-a-century athletic natural, and a man whose ingrained prowess will prove literally game-changing for golf. Director Jason Connery depicts the turbulent relationship between father and son, as headstrong and ambitious young Tommy fights against the class strictures of their time. Screening in the Young at Heart Film Festival 2017.
