An uprooted teen (Amber Liu) whose #1 passion is golf, serendipitously moves in with her aunt (who runs a golf course), where she confronts her grief and fears, under the unlikely mentor-ship of a stubborn local golf legend (Dan Lauria).
When an orphaned half Korean girl finds herself in small town America with her only living relative, she seeks out a mentor to help with the only things she loves - golf. The best player in town, the widowed optometrist, takes her under his wing, sending them on a journey to face their fear of losing loved ones and their game. The only problem is, he has three months to live.
Amber J. Liu is a Korean pop sensation from the group 'f(x)' and is a solo artist as well as professional actress. See more »
I watched Eagle and the Albatross with my daughter as she is a huge fan of the lead actress. My verdict of this movie a fun watch when you want to feel good and have a laugh at crude humor. My personal opinion is that the cinematography was really well done, the dialogue and overall script needed a bit more improvement, and the score and editing where both were a hit or miss- sometimes really well done, sometimes lacking. Overall, I feel like the acting was probably the highlight of the film. There is one scene particularly between the two lead cast members that solidifies this belief. With a bit of script adjustments I feel like Eagle and the Albatross would've excelled even more. However, for a relatively amateur film I feel like it delivered exactly what it intended. For that I'll happily give it praise.
