I admit I almost didn’t finish this movie. It’s quiet plot put me to sleep in the first 45 minutes. But then I began to try and actively watch and made it through the whole thing.
The movie is about Bobby Jones, a golfer back in the 1920s/1930s who dominated the sport much the way Tiger Woods did back about 6-7 years ago. A fresh face, an amazing talent, and surprising humility. Bobby is good at what he does – and he does everything from sell real estate to law school to playing amateur golf. In the end he decides to go for the Grand Slam – winning all four major tournaments in one year.
Jim Caviezel (*drool*) plays Jones, with Clare Forlani playing his wife Mary. Together they battle a rare illness that plagues Bobby and the intensity with which he plays golf.
It was an okay movie – could have been a bit more exciting.
