SUNSHINE ON LEITH (2013) FILM REVIEW
Sunshine On Leith is a #scottish #musical
directed by Dexter Fletcher, who I’m proud to have met, share a name with, and had the opportunity to discover his wonderful #film
It’s an extremely posh musical that features all tracks originally performed and sung by #theproclaimers
and follows two former military servers who come back home from war, and deal with finding love, and struggling with their pasts. It’s an extremely light hearted film! This film doesn’t deal with a lot of dark elements (although some) its more focussed on love, hope, new beginnings, moving on from pain, and mostly, optimism.
It’s basically a Scottish “LaLaLand” but with multiple difficult relationships, instead of just one. Also, the finale to this film is gorgeous.
It definitely does have a hefty serving of cheesiness, but it is one great piece of work that totally makes up for the occasional cheesy lines and bits, which are way undermined compared to its amazing script and performances. It’s certainly a huge thumbs up from me. I’m so glad I discovered this film. I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more to go see it!
My Score: 90/100
Rotten Tomatoes: 90%
