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.
“Inspired by Maurice Flitcroft’s stunningly bad results at the 1976 British Open, this comedy plays with a genre in which underdogs so often triumph.” — Lisa Kennedy, New York Times
“Despite its light subject matter, Phantom is about something more than an obscure British folk hero… It’s a story about following your passion, not because of the heights this path will take you to, but because it makes you happy.” — Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
