Edinburgh International Film Festival (Eiff) (June 15-26) has announced that the world premiere of Tommy’s Honour will open the 70th edition of the festival on June 15.
Shot entirely on location in Scotland, Tommy’s Honour is based on the true story of golfing pioneer Tom Morris and his turbulent relationship with his son Tommy.
Peter Mullan (Sunshine on Leith, War Horse) and Jack Lowden (War & Peace) take on the roles of father and son and lead a ensemble cast including Ophelia Lovibond (Man Up), Peter Ferdinando (Hyena) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) in the role of Alexander Boothby. Key cast are set to be in attendance on opening night.
Director Jason Connery said: “It’s so exciting! I remember standing in the middle of a field in Fife during the shoot and saying to Peter and Jack, Tommy’s Honour might get into the Edinburgh International Film Festival
