【映画】サム・ニール、「Tommy's Honor」に出演へ


サム・ニールがジェイソン・コネリー監督の「Tommy's Honor」に出演する模様。

ピーター・ミュラン、ジャック・ロウデン、オフィリア・ラヴィボンドも出演のこの映画、スコットランドで制作開始。

原作はKevin Cookの「Tommy's Honor: The Story of Old Tom Morris and Young Tom Morris, Golf's Founding Father and Son」をPamela Marinと作者が脚色。

原作はシャイア・ラブーフ主演で映画化もされたマーク・フロストの書籍「The Greatest Game Ever Played」とよく比較されているんですが…(ゴルフのお話、っちゅうことですかな)

[内容]
The Morrises were towering figures in their day. Old Tom, born in 1821,began life as a nobod-he was the son of a weaver and a maid. But he was born in St. Andrews, Scotland, the cradle of golf, and the game was in his blood. He became the Champion Golfer of Scotland, a national hero who won tournaments (and huge bets) while his young son looked on. As "Keeper of the Green" at the town’s ancient links, Tom deployed golf’s first lawnmower and banished sheep from the fairways.
Then Young Tommy’s career took off. Handsome Tommy Morris, the Tiger Woods of the nineteenth century, was a more daring player than his father. Soon he surpassed Old Tom and dominated the game. But just as he reached his peak-with spectators flocking to see him play-Tommy’s life took a tragic turn, leading to his death at the age of twenty-four. That shock is at the heart of Tommy’s Honor. It left Tom to pick up the pieces-to honor his son by keeping Tommy’s memory alive.
