THE PHANTOM OF THE OPEN tells the heartwarming true story of Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance), a dreamer and unrelenting optimist. This humble crane operator from Barrow-in-Furness managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship qualifying in 1976, despite never playing a round of golf before. He shot the worst round in Open history and drew the ire of the golfing elite, but became a folk hero in the process and, more importantly, showed his family the importance of pursuing your dreams.

Directed by Craig Roberts (Eternal Beauty, Submarine) Written by Simon Farnaby (Paddington 2) Based on the Book by Simon Farnaby and Scott Murray (The Guardian)

The Phantom of The Open stars Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins, Rhys Ifans, and others.
