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 movie was filmed entirely on location in Stretford, Greater Manchester, UK, Steven Morrissey's home city, and the actual locations where the events in the movie took place. Some of the subways seen in the movie's title sequence have been destroyed and filled in by the local council since filming was completed, as part of the redevelopment of the road systems in Stretford. Only the one with steps visible at the end of the subway in shots in the film remains. The subway movie scenes thus now show a part of Morrissey's former home city that no longer exists, and the film itself has become an historical record of the neighbourhood and of Morrissey's youth.

What a disappointing pile of garbage. This film could have been so much more but all it did was take a few key events from wikipedia and make a movie.
"If you have five seconds to spare, then I'll tell you the story of my life / Sixteen, clumsy and shy / That's the story of my life."
The film was Clumsy in the making, shy in the facts and was a waste of more than 5 seconds of my life.
