Local Hero - 40th Anniversary (12A)

Writer/director Bill Forsyth’s third feature is one of the funniest culture-clash comedies in cinema history. Described by its maker as Apocalypse Now meets Brigadoon, Local Hero both celebrates and subverts a laundry list of Scottish stereotypes. When a materialistic American corporate executive arrives in Scotland with the aim of turning a huge stretch of unspoilt northern coastline into a gigantic petrochemical refinery, the economics of oil go head to head against the enchantment of Highland culture and mythology. A movie warm enough to melt the heart of Donald Trump.

Director Bill Forsyth Cast Burt Lancaster, Peter Riegert, Fulton Mackay, UK 1983, 1h51m, PG
