Sunshine on Leith


Sunshine on Leith
Based on a hit stage play of the same name, this film is about two Scottish soldiers who return home to Leith after a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Life over there was very different to back home, and they need to learn to readjust to civil life. They also find out that dealing with their women can be even tricker than dealing with enemy soldiers. The music by The Proclaimers is an integral part of the film experience.

100 minutes.
Parental Guidance 10-12.
