9- The Legend of Bagger Vance
Tagline: Some things can't be learned. They must be remembered.
Once considered the most promising young golfer in the segregated South of the 1930s, Rannulph Junuh, Matt Damon, hasn't been the same since some World War I trench action messed with his head. A decade later, his society-gal, former lover Adele Invergordon, Charlize Theron needs a local boy to take on America's top two linksmen in a high-stakes tournament she's organized. Can Rannulph, aided by mysterious philosopher-caddy Bagger Vance, Will Smith, get his swing back in time to win it all?
