Storyline: Following a meltdown that leads to a suspension, professional golfer Zoe Papadopoulos travels to her grandparents' village in Greece to escape the harsh spotlight of the international sports world. Between baking bread and eating baklava, she meets and mentors a ten-year-old girl who is determined - against all odds - to become the next golf sensation. Along the way, Zoe rediscovers her Greek heritage, her love of the game, and the hidden strength within herself as she inspires the townspeople in an epic showdown against a greedy American developer.

The "Hero's Journey" gets a modern makeover with a Grecian flavor
If you enjoy stories about underdogs who overcome evil villains in the face of insurmountable odds, you will definitely enjoy Swing Away. As added bonuses, golf aficionados get a glimpse into the world of the LPGA, and travel buffs get a taste of Greek village life in the 21st Century as local residents find themselves fighting for their way of life against a greedy, heartless real estate magnate. Add into the mix a bit of intrigue on the part of two clever lawyers and an unlikely champion, and you have a fun film for the whole family.

Highly recommended.
Wonderful Movie
I saw this movie last night an thoroughly enjoyed it. If you liked "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" you will like this movie even more. The acting was better and more authentic, the scenery was spectacular and there was many more laughs. John O'Hurley or J. Peterman, Elaine's boss on the Seinfeld show played the bad American perfectly. He was hilarious. Take your kids to watch this great family film.
Being a real hero (No Spoilers, No Bogeys)
I went to see a screening of this great film a few months ago. Without giving anything away, I think it's fine to mention that it really captures different aspects of the Greek condition, measures for success, and a few other things. What I loved about the movie is that behind all the humor, picaresque scenes, and romantic touches is a basic morality tale that really hits home. There are unexpected heroic elements in many of the characters, regardless of their social class, training, etc.

(I can't say much more than this or I'll set off a spoiler alert. If you haven't seen it yet, please plan to!)
Great movie
Delightful movie that kept me smiling and laughing from start to finish. Beautiful scenery and cute story line with a great cast of characters. I've seen it twice already and enjoyed it even more the second time. I would watch it again and I highly recommend it for the entire family!
Well below par
Not so uplifting because the plot is utterly predictable and tired. As far as zero-to-hero films go, this is one of the weakest that i've had to endure. The acting is as wooden as a golf club. The setting of this movie is quaint which is the reason why its a max. of 2 starts. Don't waste your time with this.
Fun, beautifully filmed, family film!!!
I've seen this movie twice now and loved it both times! I had a smile on my face from start to finish. It's a charming film that you can bring the entire family to and you don't need to be Greek, or a golfer, to enjoy it. However, if you are Greek or a philhellene, you'll particularly enjoy the gorgeous Greek scenery and the authentic representation of Greek people. And, this is the first time I've seen a fusion of the Greek Orthodox Church and Nikos Kazantzakis philosophy working together in harmony to support the themes of the movie. Well done!!!!!!
