Aroview: Matt Damon is dir. Robert Redford's alter-ego in this old-fashioned folk tale that uses golf as the basis for this spiritual tale of friendship, self-discovery, and faith.
Once a golden boy and gifted golfer, he loses both his swing and self-worth when he returns years later scarred from service in WW1. A mysterious drifter (Will Smith) offers a road to redemption via services as a caddy for a reunion tournament. Takes its mood from golf's stately pace and the lush atmosphere of the 1930s Savannah, and ends in a climactic 18th hole showdown.
