Home is where the heart is for best pals Davy and Ally. Returning from duty in Afghanistan to their lifelong residence in Leith, the lads kindle romances old and new: Ally with Davy's sister Liz, and Davy with Yvonne, his little sis's best friend from work. Meanwhile, their parents Rah and Jean are busy planning their 25th wedding anniversary. Everything's going swimmingly, until a revelation from Rab's past threatens to tear the family and all three couples apart.
Dexter Fletcher directs 'Sunshine on Leith'; a jubilant, heartfelt musical about the power of love, home and family, adapted from the acclaimed stage musical by Stephen Greenhorn and featuring the euphoric music of 'The Proclaimers'.

Like butter melting on your heart. - Sunshine on Leith review by KG

Spoiler Alert
28/11/2014

Fantastic musical film.

Proclaimers songs are legendary and the film is blended into them as if they were written specifically for this film, not 20 years earlier.

The story leads us through a few years in the life of Davy and Ally after their return from Afghan.

The songs tell the story,

Returning to Edinburgh - 'I'm on my Way'

A drunken night moving on from the past - 'It's over and done with'

Life changes - 'Letter from America'

Love Blossoms - 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)'

Proclaimers music is fantastic, and the whole film is an emotional, inspiring joy.

If more than 5 stars were available, this would get it.

Leith Miserables: Health Warning - Sunshine on Leith review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
26/07/2016

Be warned: this film is built around 13 (yes, thirteen) excruciating Proclaimers’ ditties and could induce fatal irritation. Apologies to all behind and in front of the camera but it’s all about the muzak and, boy, don’t those Proclaimers proclaim. Unless your musical tastes are so atrophied that you’re willing to submit your ears to painful mind-numbing singalong pub karaoke, you are advised to give it a very wide berth. Watch with care and keep your finger hovering over the fast-forward button in case of emergency.
