Film Night 23rd November 2018

Whisky Galore 2016 Version


Every so often we host an informal film evening where members can meet up and have the opportunity to see a film where Scotland and Scottish actors are the main theme.  Often over looked, there are many fantastic Scottish based films with real Scottish actors and celebrities some of which you probably never realised were Scottish.


This comedy from 2016 is based on a true story, written by Compton MacKenzie and directed by Gillies MacKinnon, starring  Gregor Fisher, Eddie Izzard, Naomi Battrick and Sean Biggerstaff, the film is 138 minutes long.



Here is a list of well known actors often not known as being Scottish: John Hannah, Deborah Kerr, Ewan McGregor, Rose Leslie, Robbie Coltraine, Kelly Macdonald, Billy Boyd, Sheena Easton, Kevin McKidd, Robert Carlisle, Billy Connolly, Claire Grogan,  James McAvoy, Gerald Butler, Iain Glen, Annie Lennox, Richard Madden, Tilda Swinton, Dougray Scott and of course Sean Connery.



Some other great Scottish themed films you may be interested in watching : Whisky Galore! (1949), The prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969), Sweet Sixteen (2002), Gregory's Girl (1981), Ratcatcher (1999),  Ae Fond Kiss..(2004), Bonnie Scotland ( Laurel and Hardy 1935), 39 steps (1935), Mrs Brown (1997)
