The Phantom of the Open tells the remarkable true story of Maurice Flitcroft, a crane operator and optimistic dreamer from Barrow-in-Furness who, with the support of his family and friends, managed to gain entry to the 1976 British Open Golf Championship Qualifying, despite never playing a round of golf before.

With pluckiness and unwavering self-belief, Maurice pulls off a series of stunning, hilarious and heartwarming attempts to compete at the highest level of professional golf, subsquently shooting the worst round in Open history and drawing the ire of the golfing elite but becoming a British folk hero in the process.

Starring Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins and Rhys Ifans.
