Movie Premiere To Benefit First Tee Of Metropolitan N.y./n.j.

A red carpet gala charity premiere of the acclaimed golf-centric motion picture “Tommy’s Honour,” benefitting the First Tee of Metropolitan New York, is set for Wednesday, April 12, at the AMC Theater, 68th & Broadway, in New York City, and is open to the public

The event begins at 5:30 p.m., with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with the screening of the movie at 7 p.m. It will be followed by a brief auction, some great prizes and a chance for Q &A with lead cast and director/producers.

The First Tee of Metro New York includes New Jersey’s First Tee of Essex County and First Tee of Plainfield.

The film will be opening in theaters throughout the metro New York area on April 14. It is the compelling story of Old Tom Morris and Young Tom Morris, two of the pioneers of the game of golf. However, it is much more than a golf film and features many universal themes, including class struggle, family relationships, competition, love and tragedy.

Set against the early days of golf and stunning landscape of Scotland, TOMMY’S HONOUR is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom Morris (BAFTA Scotland winner Peter Mullan) and “Young” Tommy Morris (Jack Lowden, DUNKIRK, '71,DENIAL), the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.

As their fame grew exponentially, Tom and Tommy, 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 as founder of the Open Championship in 1860, his stellar playing record, andhis reputation as the local caddie master, greenkeeper and club & ball maker.

In contrast to his public persona, Tommy’s inner turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against the aristocracy who gave him opportunity, led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews chief Alexander Boothby (Sam Neill, JURASSIC PARK, THE PIANO), and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen (Ophelia Lovibond, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, MAN UP).
