Format: DVD
Bill Paxton has taken the true story of the 1913 US golf open and made a film that is about much more than an extra-ordinary game of golf. The film also deals directly with the class tensions of the early twentieth century and touches upon the profound anti-Catholic prejudices of both the British and American establishments. But at heart the film is about that perennial favourite of triumph against the odds.

The acting is exemplary throughout. Stephen Dillane is excellent as usual. But the revelation of the movie is Shia LaBoeuf: After a career which to that point had been principally marked by his slap-stick performances in the children's programme "Even Stevens", LaBoeuf delivers a disciplined, dignified and highly sympathetic performance as a working class Franco-Irish kid fighting his way through the prejudices of the New England WASP establishment. And Josh Flitter as the ten year old caddy steals every scene in which he appears.

A old fashioned movie in the best sense of the word: fine acting, clear directing and a great story that grips to the end - the final scene an affectionate nod to Casablanca is just one of the many pleasures that fill a great movie.

A well told story which holds your attention to the finale. This is a very classy tale of a youngster's talent and determination to succeed in reaching the pinnacles of the golfing world, despite all the obstacles that being born into a humble working class family presents. Golf was considered at that time to be a "gentlmans' game" played by only wealthy upper class males of a certain social standing. Only the elite were permitted to belong to golf clubs, and take part in prestigious golfing competition, both in the United States and Britain.
This is a wonderful story, excellently directed, and with first class performances from the actors.
In my opinion, this story reaches beyond the golfing fraternity,and holds appeal for anyone who enjoys a real life story told as expertly as this one.

SAFE READING - NO SPOILERS

This is the story of the 1913 US Open Golf Championship; like many championships, not just golf, there is much more going on behind the scenes than the public ever sees. The best golfers of their time gathered at Brookline, Massachusetts. Ted Ray and Harry Vardon were considered the best there was and one was expected to win against a strong American challenge determined to stop the cup going to Britain. No-one seriously expected Francis Ouimet, an amateur from the "wrong side of the tracks" playing a gentleman's game to have any chance.

To know the rest, readers will have to purchase the DVD. Although readers do not have to be golfers to enjoy this, it helps.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Mark Pearce on 29 Aug. 2008
Format: DVD
Flashy,symbolic and quite powerful account of the 1913 U S Open where local amateur Francis Ouimet(Shia LeBeouf)goes head to head with Ted Ray(Stephen Marcus)and the legendary Harry Vardon(Stephen Dillane)for the title.
Written by Mark Frost(based on his excellent book of the same name),Bill Paxton(he also directed Frailty- a very under-rated horror film)imbues the proceedings with visual tricks worthy of a Fatboy Slim video and it works brilliantly.Golf has never been this kinetic on screen before.
Beautiful to look at with genuine period flavour and with it's sporting cliches punched across,Greatest... is rich entertainment.LeBeouf is fine as the rabbit caught in the headlights of two towering players and Dillane as the troubled and enigmatic Vardon is marvellous in a slightly underwritten role.In fact some of the elements of the book that gave it such richness are missing here- the unhinged Mrs Vardon and Harry's problems with his putter that was to haunt him the rest of his career are overlooked.
The irony of the "professional" as an outsider and certainly not a gentleman is well captured as is the attendant class prejudices.Peter Firth is miscast as Lord Northcliffe and Walter Hagen is completely ignored.
Still a wonderful evocation of a key moment in golf with the finale being expertly judged by Paxton to capture our emotions completely.I had tears streaming down my face at the end and I am happy to say so.
