Wonderful Interpretation
13 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's always risky to make a book into a movie, and usually the flick doesn't live up to the tome, primarily because great literature explores the internal whereas film concerns itself with the exterior. Riskier still when the book is category-killing classic such as Golf In The Kingdom.

This film, however, gets it--beyond faithful to the feel, the spirit, and the mystery of the novel. Impeccable direction, inspired acting, and brilliant cinematography. A must see for any aficionado of Murphy's eternal gift to golf literature, not to mention any golfer who has ever played or dreamed of playing on America's only true-to-Scottish links course. I shan't spoil it by naming the location. You'll you'll just have to stay through the credits.

To the Producer/Distributor: please, PLEASE get the DVD out soon, because I want to see it again and again, and I'm running out of airfare.
