Seve combines dramatic recreations with electrifying archive footage to tell his incredible rags to riches story; from humble beginnings on the beaches of Spain, where aged six he taught himself the game with a broken 3 iron strapped to a stick, to becoming world number one and the greatest golfer of a generation. Directed by John-Paul Davidson (Stephen Fry in America, Brazil with Michael Palin) and edited by Saska Simpson (The Three Kings, Paranormal Witness) with original score by Academy Award winner Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love), Seve is produced by Stephen Evans (Much Ado About Nothing, BAFTA nominated The Madness of King George and Confessions of a Dangerous Mind) with the full support of the Seve Ballesteros Foundation.Written by

Seve the Movie is a smart and unconventional biopic
Seve the Movie is a smart and unconventional biopic that is as every bit entertaining as it is informative. Director John-Paul Davidson's fourth feature is centered on Seve Ballesteros, who shines throughout his pre-teens to adulthood as Spain's finest golfer. Newcomer José Luis Gutiérrez does an exceptional job portraying young Seve as he faces odds at home, school, and his caddy job at the golf course his brother works at. Throughout the film, there are cuts to documentary footage that make it clear Seve accomplishes his aspiration to be a pro-golfer. Despite knowing the outcome of Seve's career, the film does a great job keeping the audience's attention and emotions invested in young Seve. Furthermore, the cinematography fully realizes the setting of 1970s Spain. Seve the Movie tells Seve Ballesteros' life story in a way that is engaging and inspiring.
