The Phantom of the Open

1h 46m Comedy, Drama, Sport 2022

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN tells the remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer from Barrow-in-Furness 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 heartwarming 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, Sally Hawkins and Rhys Ifans star in this uplifting and moving comedy-drama about pursuing your dreams and shooting for the stars, no matter what hand you’re dealt.

“One of this year’s most charming films – a broad crowd-pleaser that stands a good chance of winning over even the most cynical audiences.” ~Alistair Ryder, The Film Stage

“A rousing salute to a very English strain of nincompoopery.” ~Robbie Collin, The Telegraph
