Film Review: Tommy’s Honour

Who would have thought a film about the early days of golf in Scotland could carry with it this much heart, and emotional turmoil. Held together with an incredibly well crafted narrative, this surprisingly moving tale offers way more than its tittle would suggest.  Directed by Jason Connery (son of Sean Connery) from a screenplay by Pamela Marin, Tommy’s Honour is not only well acted and beautifully portrayed by a brilliantly self-effacing cast, but it is also a film which will have you rethink your preconceived ideas about the sport.
