“Once over, the mood of the film hits home and a longing develops to visit once again the characters of this warm and deceptively slight comedy.” - BBC ★★★★
Endlessly quotable and timelessly poignant, LOCAL HERO remains among the definitive representations of Scotland on screen.
Texan oil executive Mac (Reigert) is dispatched by his boss Felix Happer (Lancaster) to the village of Furness on the west coast of Scotland, with orders to buy out the town – and its people – for the development of a refinery. But Mac soon finds himself enchanted by the community and its citizens, with Texas beginning to feel further and further away.
