Based on the powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom and “Young” Tommy Morris, TOMMY’S HONOUR recounts the life of the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf. As their fame grew, Tom and Tommy, considered by many to be Scotland’s Golf royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy. At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments and respect as founder of the Open Championship in 1860 with a series of his own triumphs. But in contrast to Tommy’s public persona, his personal turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against both the aristocracy who gave him opportunity, and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his wife. Directed by Jason Connery, and starring Peter Mullan (War Horse), Jack Lowden (’71), Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), this poignant drama serves as both a deeply affecting tribute to a true sporting pioneer, and a testament to the unique bond between father and son.
Meet Ove (Rolf Lassgård), an isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse - the quintessential angry old man next door. Having entirely given up on life, his days are spent in a constant monotony of enforcing housing association rules and visiting his beloved wife Sonja’s grave. Ove’s somewhat contend existence is disrupted, however, with the arrival of a boisterous young family who move in next door. Heavily pregnant Parvaneh (Bahar Pars) and her lively children are the complete antithesis of what ill-tempered Ove thinks he needs. Yet, from this unhappy beginning an unlikely friendship blooms and Ove’s past happiness and heartbreaks come to light. Based on the international bestselling novel by Fredrik Backman, the award-winning A MAN CALLED OVE is a wistful, heartwarming tale of unreliable first impressions and a wonderful reminder that life is sweeter when it’s shared.

A sublime new film from Jim Jarmusch (Only Lovers Left Alive), starring Adam Driver (Star Wars: Force Awakens) and Golshifteh Farahani (Rosewater).
