USA 2021.  The remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and dreamer from Barrow-In-Furness who managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open Golf qualifying despite never having played a round of golf before.

With pluckiness and self-belief, he pulls off a series of 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.  Mark Rylance plays Maurice, ably supported by Sally Hawkins as his wife.

Running time: 106 minutes
