‘The Mulligan’ nominated for Most Inspirational Independent Movie

March 15, 2023

“The Mulligan,” the most recent feature film from Liberty’s cinematic arts program, was nominated by MovieGuide for Most Inspirational Independent Movie for films released in 2022. The film released nationwide last April.

Cinematic Arts Executive Director Stephan Schultze attended the awards ceremony in Los Angeles in February. 

“The Mulligan” is Liberty’s third feature film to hit the big screen in a national release, partnering with ReelWorks Studios owner and executive producer Rick Eldridge.

Based on the book by Wally Armstrong and Ken Blanchard, “The Mulligan” tells the story of a father with a passion for golf who has drifted from his family but is offered the opportunity to have a “do-over” with his son (or, in golf terms, an extra stroke or a “mulligan”).

Throughout March of 2021, 48 students worked on location. Many of the scenes were filmed at Currahee Golf Club in Toccoa, Ga.

The cast includes Pat Boone (“Journey to the Center of the Earth,” “State Fair”), Eric Close (“Nashville,” “American Sniper,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Tanya Christiansen (“I Still Believe,” “The Hate U Give”), and Charmin Lee (“Just Mercy,” “The 5th Wave”) with special appearances by American sportscaster Jim Nantz, sports commentator Jim Szoke, and PGA champion Tom Lehman.

The film is currently available on DVD and many streaming platforms.
