Based on a powerful true story, Tommy's Honour recounts the life of the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf. With eight Open Championship wins between them, "Old" Tom Morris (Peter Mullan) and his son Tommy (Jack Lowden) transformed the game of golf in the late 1800s when they were considered to be Scotland's golf royalty. Yet as their fame and fortune grew, their own relationship was touched by drama and personal tragedy.
Interesting story, but the film is somewhat shapeless and the dialogue rather awkward. While both the principal actors were made to resemble the two Toms, the younger and the older, it was all a bit wooden and seemed rather amateurish.

Better than I expected
- Tommy's Honour review by AS
The accents were a bit dubious, and I thought that young Tom looked a bit like he was trying to play the part of Frank Spencer, but overall it was a good film - although I'm not a golf fan, I thought the history behind the film was interesting.
