Seven Days in Utopia

(G) ★★☆☆☆

A young golfer has a meltdown in the middle of a tournament, followed by seven days of perspective-patching among mild-mannered, God-fearing folk in rural Texas. Faith and “fore” walk hand-in-hand in this soft-centered, faith-based drama starring Lucas Black of Friday Night Lights. The film lacks surprises and tension, as we work our way down the middle of the fairway toward the predictable climactic finish.
