Greatest Game Ever Played, The

Absorbing and inspiring true-life story of a young amateur working-class golfer, Francis Ouimet (Shia LeBeouf), who played against British golf champion Harry Vardon (Stephen Dillane) in the 1913 U.S. Open. Director Bill Paxton's film is filled with excellent period detail, and though the pace is leisurely, the color palette muted and the dialogue low-key, the themes of class conflict, achievement against improbable odds, loyalty and good sportsmanship are vividly drawn, and the golf sequences are grippingly suspenseful. Minimal, mild language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I -- general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
