Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Mark Gibson directs this quirky comedy about golf, drunks, and divorcees. The film focuses on pro-golfer and ex-con Lionel "Ex" Exley (Campbell Scott), who comes to New Orleans in search of his golf clubs. He soon finds himself consorting with decadent upper-crust types, such as alcoholic lawyer W. Firmin Carter (Jared Harris) and hot-to-trot divorcee Rachel Van Dyke (Laura Linney). Later, when Carter mysteriously disappears, Ex gets embroiled in an insurance fraud scheme. This film was screened at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival.
