Mark Rylance films The Fantastic Flitcrofts
The comedy feature is based on the book The Phantom of the Open by Simon Farnaby and Scott Murray.
Rylance plays Maurice Flitcroft, a dreamer who managed to gain entry to The British Open Golf Championship qualifying in 1976, and subsequently shot the worst round in Open history, becoming a folk hero in the process.
