- HBO Making Of: "Robert Redford Storyteller"
Academy Award Winning Director, Robert Redford (A River Runs Through It, The Horse Whisperer) brings to life the story of Rannulph Junuh, (Matt Damon - The Talented Mr Ripley, Saving Private Ryan), a promising young golfer who loses his swing after he experiences the harrowing frontlines of war. Once considered Savannah's greatest sportsman and favourite celebrity, Junuh had won the heart of the town's prettiest heiress, Adele Invergordon (Charlize Theron - Men of Honor, Devil's Advocate). But when he returned from war, he was a defeated man, giving up both golf and Adele for the sake of alcohol.
When Junuh is given the chance to redeem himself by competing in a celebrity golf tournament, he must regain his swing and his self-respect. It will take a miracle, in the form of a mysterious caddy named Bagger Vance (Will Smith - Wild West, Men In Black), for Junuh to get his game back as well as his life.
