The Greatest Game Ever Played
Finally, a movie I really love! The Greatest Game Ever Played is a true story, and one that had the audience applauding over the credits. No big names, just a great story – well acted, well told. This is the kind of movie the whole family can enjoy – but don’t think you have to bring the kids! Greg and I went on our own and came home to tell Brian that it is a “must see.” Shia LaBeouf plays Francis Ouimet, a downtown kid aspiring to play an uptown game called golf. He’s a caddy with a real talent for the game, but because of he’s not a “gentleman” he is discouraged at every turn. He is inspired by golfer Harry Vardon, whose background is similar to his own. This is one of those stand up and cheer scenarios, where you’re rooting for the kid with the big dreams. Go see it!
