A soul-warmer for cold evenings.
I’m not a fan of musicals. I’m not quite sure why I should enjoy watching people sing their conversations instead of having a straightforward, impassioned talk. Sunshine on Leith isn’t that kind of musical.

Sunshine on Leith is cheesy, predictable and I had a fab time watching it! Adapted for the big screen, from his own stage play, by Stephen Greenhorn, Sunshine on Leith will be known by many as the Scottish comedy rammed to the gills with The Proclaimers’ songs. The twins even enjoy a brief stroll in front of the camera and I found myself having a private game of Which Proclaimers’ song comes next? in the cinema.

Three soldiers return home to Scotland after a tour of duty and try to adapt to life on civvy street. While Davy (George Mackay) goes home to mum, Jean (Jane Horricks), dad, Rab (Peter Mullan), and sister, Liz (Freya Mavor), his best friend Ally (Kevin Guthrie), who is dating Liz, stays with his sister’s family. On a celebratory night out, Davy hooks up with his sister’s friend, Yvonne (Antonia Thomas) and over the next few months we watch as three relationships (Jean & Rab, Ally & Liz and Davy & Yvonne) evolve and deal with the challenges life throws at them.

I’ll be honest (as always), Sunshine on Leith is not a great film. There are occasional moments of ropey acting, it is difficult not to grimace at some of the circumstances, it all flows and finishes entirely too easily, there are far too many avenues hinted at but never explored, I’m pretty sure it’s not a fair representation of Scotland and it’s far from being an accurate portrayal of squaddies returning from warzones.

In terms of feel good films, it’s out of step with the likes of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and lacks the gritty charm of Ken Loach’s little seen but superb The Angels’ Share. There is an entire subplot starring the latter’s Paul Brannigan as Ronnie, the third of the trio of soldiers, that is hinted at but not fully explored, as if time was of the essence and director Dexter Fletcher felt the need to excise him for pace, and it leaves us wondering why he was left in the film at all.

But, gripes aside, this is an entertaining, inoffensive, thoroughly enjoyable experience that doesn’t need detailed analysis. Take it as it is, lap it up, feel good about yourself and then move on.

Peter Mullan and Jane Horrocks, though not a couple one would automatically think to put together, play perfectly against each other as the couple nearing their silver wedding anniversary. Knowing the musical talent that brought Horrocks to the fore, it is an almost agonizing wait for her to be given her chance to sing but you’ll be satisfied to know she has a few moments in the limelight. Though Mullan may not be a natural singer, he handles his numbers very well and there is no danger of him ‘doing’ a Peirce Brosnan (in Mamma Mia!) or Russell Crowe (in Les Misérables).

The central trio of MacKay, Guthrie and Mavor gel well, hold the attention, engage us and bounce well off each other, but the jaw-on-the-floor performer here is Antonia Thomas. She has been sorely missing from my life since she moved on from the dark, twisted and utterly fantastic Misfits and it’s good to see her back on screen after such an absence. She performs well and is the equal of her peers here but when she sings Wow!

There are more than sufficient high points in Sunshine on Leith to forgive all the missed opportunities and false starts. Given the choice, I would embrace another twenty doses of Sunshine on Leith than a single, torturous repeat experience of Les Misérables.

It was an eight star film when I emerged that settled comfortably into a six star once the euphoria had subsided. Sweet, fun, very enjoyable indeed, Sunshine on Leith is sure to be an absolutely huge hit with the ‘only go to the cinema once a year’ brigade. When the nights grow dark and cold this is a very good reason to venture out and warm your soul.

Disappointing! 2/10
Review: This movie was definitely what I expected from Dexter Fletcher. As soon as they starting singing at the beginning, I knew that I had made a big mistake. If it wasn’t for the annoying singing, the film wouldn’t have been half bad, but I should have read the plot before I rented it. The ending was REALLY bad. It reminded me of a advert that was filmed at Liverpool street. There is an embedded concept that was well put together, but on the whole, it’s weak and bloody annoying. Disappointing!

Round-Up: When I saw that Jason Flemying, who is only in a couple of scenes, and Peter Mullan was in this film, I had high hopes, but what a let down. There are a couple of scenes that wasn’t that bad but then they start bloody singing. I really didn’t expect this type of movie from Dexter Fletcher, who is known for movies that are not in this type of genre. Anyway, I’m not the best person to rate this film because my brain switched off after the first 10 minutes.

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: £4.1million

I recommend this movie to people who are into there musicals/dramas about 2 Scottish friends getting back to ordinary life after being in Afghanistan. 2/10
