Searching for the "Authentic Swing"

  • Dec 7, 2005
When I saw it at the theater, The Legend of Baggar Vance touched me so deeply that I went back 2 more times to see it (something I've never done before.)

Directed by Robert Redford and starring Will Smith, Matt Damon, and Charlize Theron, this movie is about golf as a metaphor for life. I very much identified with Rannulph Junuh, the disillusioned WW1 veteran who was searching for his 'authentic swing'--as well as himself.

Bagger the mysterious caddy (played by Smith) is a wise and good-natured guru that challenges Junuh to reach deep within him and remember who he was--and who he can become.

The mystical themes that I enjoyed in this movie was how the "mundane" can be a powerful metaphor for spiritual truths, what it means to be authentic, and how life has a rhythm and flow to it that can be eased into when one becomes more conscious.
