    The Legend of Bagger Vance
    Robert Redford directed this adaptation of a novel by Steven Pressfield that uses golf as a metaphor for one man's spiritual and philosophical journeys. Rannulph Junuh (Matt Damon) was a gifted amateur golfer from Savannah, GA, until traumatic experiences during World War I shattered his confidence and sent him into a spiral of alcoholism. In 1931, Adele Invergordon (Charlize Theron), a beautiful heiress who once loved Junuh, inherits a spectacular but financially ailing golf course after the suicide of her father. To attract customers, she proposed a high-stakes match between the two most famous golfers of the day, Bobby Jones (Joel Gretsch) and Walter Hagen (Bruce McGill). Local businessmen sponsoring the match insist that a local golfer be added to the card, and Junuh is drafted for the position, but it soon becomes obvious that his game is just a shadow of its former glory. When things seem hopeless, a mysterious gentleman named Bagger Vance (Will Smith) volunteers to serve as Junuh's caddy and coach, using a mixture of ancient wisdom and past-life knowledge to help Junah "remember" the swing he's lost. Jack Lemmon narrates the story, and J. Michael Moncrief plays Lemmon's character as a boy. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      So Close, Yet So Far


      I'll be the first to admit that 'the Legend of Bagger Vance' has every bit of what it takes to be a 5-star movie. The cast, the story, and the acting are all superb. The problem arises more in the direction and editing of the film in my opinion, as there are certain sequences that simply do not belong and/or could have been done much better. Still, not a bad movie, and fans will enjoy this widescreen special edition.

      Good Movie


      The story is very good and this movie has a very good cast. It was a bit slow at times, though.
