The website to the movie “From the Rough” is online. In addition to the synopsis about the movie and a view of the cast, the site shows some photos of the film.
TOM FELTON plays “Edward.” Best known as “Draco Malfoy” in the Harry Potter franchise, the most successful worldwide in cinema history, he is just now coming into his own as a performer; Felton plays a lead in the upcoming reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise and has just landed a record contract (music available on iTunes and at “Feltbeats.com”). “Edward” promises to show a side of Tom we’ve never seen before.
FROM THE ROUGH is based on the true story of Catana Starks, a former swim coach at Tennessee State University who became the first woman ever to coach a college men’s golf team. With drive, passion, and guts, she took an unruly group of mismatched kids from around the world and guided them to an all-time record at the PGA National Collegiate Minority Championship.
Tasked with building Tennessee State’s first golf team and finding only one available African American golfer – Craig, a former caddy with plenty of talent but no confidence – Catana Starks pushes outside TSU’s Historically Black context, and, against huge resistance, opens up the roster to underprivileged kids from around the world: Edward, a lower class British youth with a rakish charm and a contempt for authority; Bassam, a French-Algerian from Paris, angry about the discrimination of his people, soft-spoken but likely to explode; Cameron, an Australian from a single-parent household with a childhood spent working, using golf as means to escape; and Ji-Kyung, a disaffected South Korean from Orange County with a love of hip hop.
Finding each of these wildly different players in places around the world is tough. Getting them to come together as a team is tougher. But Catana Starks relishes the challenge. At the end of the day, a person’s character is determined by the adversity she faces. Against all odds, Catana Starks takes her underdogs From the Rough and turns them into winners.
The film will be released probably this year. We let you know if we know the exact date.
