Screenwriter: Simon Farnaby
Starring: Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins
The film tells the remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator from Barrow-in-Furness who managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open, despite never playing a round of golf before. With unwavering self-belief, Maurice pulls off a series of stunning, attempts to compete at the highest level of professional golf, drawing the ire of the golfing elite. From the writer of Paddington 2 (Simon Farnaby), it stars Mark Rylance and Sally Hawkins as his wife.
“The film is a welcome revival of the old Ealing comedy spirit – the wit and silliness, but also the keen eye for specifically British eccentricity, and the recognition of class and community as highly fertile comedic terrain. A wise reminder that the joy of incompetence can outstrip the satisfaction of a job well done.” The Telegraph
