Sunshine on Leith (2013)

Directed by
Dexter Fletcher

George MacKay and Kevin Guthrie star in director Dexter Fletcher's adaptation of Stephen Greenhorn's hit stage musical set to the songs of Scottish folk-pop duo The Proclaimers. Soldiers Davy and Ally are first glimpsed during their nerve-racking tour of duty in Afghanistan, but it's not long before the narrative jumps to their home city of Edinburgh. Now out of the army, Davy's thoughts have switched from war to love, as he returns to his girlfriend Liz, who is Ally's sister, and the couple's thoughts turn to their future together. Romance also seems likely for Ally, when he meets Yvonne, who works with Liz as a nurse. All looks set for happiness, until, at Davy's parents' silver wedding celebration party, the revelation of a family secret has dire consequences. Edited for language and violence.
