Short, brilliant film about teenage angst - Gregory's Girl review by RP

Spoiler Alert
07/02/2012

A short, brilliant film by Bill Forsyth that tells the story of teenage angst in a Scottish new town.

Gregory is a gangling, awkward young man who is besotted by Dorothy, who outclasses all the boys in the school football team. Gregory and his friends yearn for their first encounter with the opposite sex, but are so awkward that they really don't know how – perhaps a situation we've all been in? It is of course the girls who set the ball rolling, and Gregory has a series of encounters which culminate in kisses with Susan. Perhaps he was not so infatuated with Dorothy as he at first thought...

I first saw this film some 30 years ago and it still holds its charm - and humour - today. Yes, the haircuts and clothes may be dated and perhaps the age of teenage innocence has passed, but the awkwardness of our teens persists. 5/5 stars. Highly recommended.
