Entertainment One has debuted a new trailer for the upcoming feature from Craig Roberts, ‘The Phantom of the Open.’
The film 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.
Directed by filmmaker and BAFTA® Cymru Award-winning actor Craig Roberts, from a screenplay by BAFTA-winning writer, Simon Farnaby (Paddington 2), which he adapted from his own book.
The movie stars Mark Rylance as Maurice, Sally Hawkins as his wife Jean and Rhys Ifans as his nemesis Mackenzie.
