At the Liberty: "The Long Game"


DAYTON — “The Long Game,” inspired by the book “Mustang Miracle” follows the true story of five young Mexican American caddies in 1955 who created their own golf course in the middle of the South Texas brush country. Despite outdated and inferior equipment and not professional instruction to begin with, they would go on to compete against wealthy, all-white teams and win the 1957 Texas State High School Golf Championship.

This movie has high rating from both the critics (80%) and audience (97%) on the Rotten Tomatoes website. Their critics summarized their review as “An appealing underdog story based on an uplifting true story, “The Long Game” represents a triumph of sheer heart over well-worn narrative formula.” The IMDb website gave this movie a 7.2 out of 10. This movie is rated PG for language, racial slurs, thematic material, some violence and brief rude material. It has a runtime of 1 hr. 52 minutes.
