Sunshine on Leith

Sunshine on Leith Parental Guidance

100 minutes

Experienced screen actor and up-and-coming filmmaker Dexter Fletcher (Lock Stock, Topsy-Turvy; Wild Bill) shows something of a midas touch behind the camera with this hugely enjoyable, feel-good romp based upon the stage musical by Stephen Greenhorn that features the music of The Proclaimers. Returning from duty in Afghanistan to Leith, lifelong friends Davy and Ally must re-learn how to live life in Edinburgh. Soon they are kindling romances new and old and everything is going swimmingly until a revelation from their past threatens to tear their lives apart. They must then pull together to ensure the sun keeps on shining.

“It’s hard to keep the grin off your face!” Tim Robey, The Daily Telegraph

Much Ado about Jazz with Chris Gumley and Al Gurr at Upton Magna VH last night - absolutely brilliant night. Such fantastically talented musicians!

Excellent venue, interesting choice of films, good choice of refreshments and value for money. Very happy, friendly event. We look forward to coming to Colwall.

I am so pleased I was able to see the film, as is was intended on the big screen. Much better than watching it at home on the television.

Audience feedback - Lingen Village Hall

Most films we've seen are enjoyable, well-chosen for the audience and very entertaining at times. Very well run by the group, especially the refreshments at intermission.

An exciting community resource in this isolated village. 'A taste of culture'.

This venue at Tasley is extremely well organised, films are well varied for a mixed audience.

The organisers were very welcoming and offered drinks and cake as everyone arrived. The film (Ali & Ava) was different and gave an insight to other peoples lives. This is why I go to Flicks in the Sticks : to see other films rather than Box Office blockbusters and get a glimpse into other cultures around the world.
