Movie Info

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 who has designs not only on the local course but the village as well.

Critic Reviews for Swing Away

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Just like its struggling athletic heroine, "Swing Away" develops a case of the yips.

October 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Swing Away is a cute film with lots of charm, it has good examples for lead characters and a fairly typical bad guy who feels a bit like a cartoon.

April 13, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Predictable but sweet family-friendly golf comedy.

October 24, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A charming tale of community interaction, Greek soulfulness without the "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" amplification, and golf.

October 12, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

A totally implausible film[, ...] Swing Away is also a harmless entertainment with girl power themes for the pre-teen set.
