Last evening I sat down and enjoyed a movie I havent seen for 25 years.......ouch. My eldest son had watched it earlier in the week and told me how he remembered us watching it all those years ago, and more importantly I suppose, how important its message still is.
Directed by Bill Forsyth and produced by David Puttnam, the cast pulls off the character acting demanded by the plot superbly.
Local Hero spawned a series of imitations, creating a whole new genre of film—the wacky Scottish comedy...Built on a mountain of metaphysics, the movie demands a few leaps of faith that are a bit difficult to make. But the premise of a yuppie from Texas traveling to an isolated town in Scotland to make poor but savvy fishermen wealthy is hilarious in itself...
I will say no more......grinning........watch and enjoy and enjoy your Saturday.
