The Legend of Bagger Vance by Robert Redford, 2000 (PG-13)

with Will Smith (Men In Black 1, MIB 2, MIB 3, Enemy of the State), Matt Damon (Invictus, Margaret, True Grit, We Brought a Zoo, The Informant!, Herafter, Inside Job, The Adjustment Bureau, Promised Land), Charlize Theron (The Italian Job, Young Adult, Prometheus), Bruce McGill (Fair Game, Lincoln), Joel Gretsch (4400, V), Jack Lemmon, J. Michael Moncrief, Lane Smith, Peter Gerety, Michael O'Neill (Dallas Buyers Club), Thomas Jay Ryan, Dermot Crowley, Harve Presnell (Face/Off), Danny Nelson
From the director of The Conspirator and The Horse Whisperer

Devastated by his experiences during World War I, once-promising golfer Rannulph Junuh has become a poker-playing alcoholic whose perfect swing is gone — until mysterious caddy Bagger Vance enters the picture to help Junuh make a comeback.

Ok, tearjerker, but still, the pacing of the editing, the contemplation mixed with the suspense of the game, the tranquil voice-over of Will Smith making you feel the elements and the serenity of control, convincing Matt Damon as an eternally surprised golfer, this flows in a pleasant way, sometimes going overboard with sentimental violins, the feel-good spirit of the town, this is a movie about hope and dreams. Convincing portrayal of the passion for golf, makes you want to go out on the green and feel it for yourself.
