The Bicks dig deep to deliver on the promise of the surprising and inspirational true story of the 1913 US Open as told by Mark Frost in the 2005 film The Greatest Game Ever Played (which, in turn, was based on his book of the same name).
Starring Shia LaBoeuf as amateur golfer Francis Ouimet, the film takes us on a leisurely stroll along the links of history, with detours into the upper-crust world of the English and American class systems -- which aren't as different as you'd imagine -- before settling in on some of the most exciting and nerve-wracking sportsing action ever committed to film (and we're not being hyperbolic or ironic here!)
