Golf movie ‘Tommy’s Honour’ to show at Reg Lenna
JAMESTOWN — The golf movie “Tommy’s Honour” will be shown at Reg Lenna Center for The Arts on Wednesday, July 26 at 7 p.m.
“Tommy’s Honour” is based on the powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom and “Young” Tommy Morris, the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf. As their fame grew, 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 and respect as founder of the Open Championship in 1860 with a series of his own triumphs. But in contrast to Tommy’s public persona, his personal turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against both the aristocracy who gave him opportunity and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his wife. The film stars Jack Lowden (“Dunkirk”), Sam Neill (“Jurassic Park”), Peter Mullan (“Braveheart”) and Ophelia Lovibond (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) and was directed by Jason Connery. Tommy’s Honour is rated PG and is 117 minutes long.
