"Bagger Vance" and "R. Junuh" are representations of Bhagavan (Krishna) and Arjuna, from the Hindu text "The Bhagavad Gita". The lessons learned by Rannulph are loosely based on those Krishna teaches to Arjuna while masquerading as his lowly chariot driver. See more »
During the big 1930 golf match, there are numerous scenes of drinking in a very socially acceptable and legal manner. From 1919 until 1933 the U.S. was under Prohibition. Although there was much laxity in enforcing this law, which led to its being repealed in only 14 years, this was a situation where someone could not have gotten away with violating it. See more »
Excellent film! Redford is getting better over the years, just like Clint Eastwood. Smith and Damon are perfect. The screenplay is brilliant, the soundtrack is very beaultiful, and the photography is wonderful. Great entertainment!
