Staring: Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins & Rhys Ifans
A feel good finish for this season brings the true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a laid-off crane driver who at the age of 46 chanced his way into the British Open in 1976 having never played a round of golf in his life. Rhys Ifans is the spoil sport as the head of the British Open trying to stop Flitcroft, who responds with wigs, moustaches and entering various tournaments under pseudonyms like Gene Paycheki, Arnold Palmtree, and Count Manfred von Hoffmanstel. In the vein of Eddie the Eagle and Dream Horse this is the quintessential underdog accomplishing outrageous acts against both the odds and the establishment.
