The Legend of Bagger Vance

The Legend of Bagger Vance Brief Information

The Legend of Bagger Vance is a 2000 American sports drama film directed by Robert Redford, and stars Will Smith, Matt Damon and Charlize Theron. It is based on the 1995 book The Legend of Bagger Vance: A Novel of Golf and the Game of Life by Steven Pressfield and takes place in the U.S. state of Georgia in 1931. It was Jack Lemmon's final film role before his death the following year. It was also the final film of Lane Smith before his death five years later.

On release, the film was criticised by several black commentators and reviewers for using the "magical negro" as a plot device. Since the film's release, some in the mainstream media have also described the film as flawed and racially insensitive.
