The Stone of Destiny retells the fascinating and true story of four young Glaswegian students who, in 1951, outwitted the British authorities in their successful attempt to take back the Stone of Scone - a beloved symbol of Scottish pride, back to its country of origin.
easy viewing, cute cast
- Stone of Destiny review by PR
A nice tale featuring a very likeable, cute even, lot of actors - if you can stomach yet more resentment about something that happened nearly 700 years ago. However, much credit must be given to the script writer and director for not portraying the English of the time as a bunch of oppressive Scot-hating tyrants, in fact, quite the opposite: this film will make you nostalgic for the days when the London bobby on the beat really was a fatherly figure with your best interests at heart. Good movie to watch when you want something acceptably well made and pleasant requiring not too much mental or emotional effort.
