In every generation, a torch passes from father to son. And that timeless dynamic is the beating heart of Tommy's Honour - an intimate, powerfully moving tale of the real-life founders of the modern game of golf.
Manchester, 1976. Stephen Patrick Morrissey is unemployed and depressed. He eventually finds work but it doesn't interest him. His only interest appears to be writing down his observations on life and people in a journal. We see his life over the next six years and how this period would have a bearing on his later life for, in 1982, he was to form The Smiths, one of the most influential bands of the 80s.Written by
The title is taken from the lyric "I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving, England is mine, it owes me a living" from the song "Still Ill", which was never a UK Top 75 chart hit but featured on the 1984 debut album by The Smiths. See more »
The thought of a Morrissey film sounded good,but after the film ended very open ended and lacked any Smiths music..I was disappointed,There is always more to any persons life then being one dimentional and this film shows him that way..flat paper thin...there was much to how scenes were presented or framed..shot straight forwardly and simple....It wasenrt very introspective on the workings of a young artists mind..his sexuality, his place wintin the world he was born...i hope someone comes along has a sense of art and makes a film with more smiths music...Not focus on fame or money or sucess the artist mind his place in the world..
