Sneak Peek: Tommy’s Honour
Set against the early days of the sport and stunning landscape of Scotland, TOMMY’S HONOUR is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom Morris (BAFTA winner Peter Mullan) and “Young” Tommy Morris (Jack Lowden, DUNKIRK, ’71, DENIAL), the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.
As their fame grew exponentially, Tom and Tommy, Scotland’s Golf Royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy. At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments as founder of the Open Championship in 1860, his stellar playing record, and his reputation as the local caddie master, greenskeeper and club & ball maker. In contrast to his public persona, Tommy’s inner turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against the aristocracy who gave him opportunity, led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews chief Alexander Boothby (Sam Neill, JURASSIC PARK, THE PIANO), and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen (Ophelia Lovibond, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, MAN UP).
