The Phantom of the Open

A heart-warming British comedy starring Oscar Winner Mark Rylance, the true story of Maurice Flitcroft, the worst golfer to ever the play the British Open.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN tells the heartwarming true story of Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance), a dreamer and unrelenting optimist. This humble crane operator from Barrow-in-Furness managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship qualifying in 1976, despite never playing a round of golf before. He shot the worst round in Open history and drew the ire of the golfing elite, but became a folk hero in the process and, more importantly, showed his family the importance of pursuing your dreams.

"The Phantom of the Open is a rousing salute to a very English strain of nincompoopery - and a wise and witty reminder that that the pleasure of doing something spectacularly badly can outstrip the satisfaction of a job well done." - Daily Telegraph (UK)

"Craig Roberts directs energetically -- lots of pop songs, fantasy sequences, trick shots -- but the film is made by its casting. Flitcroft is played by Mark Rylance, who brings more charm and humanity to the part than seems possible." - David Sexton, New Statesman
