Returning to Leith after a tour of Afghanistan, Davy (MacKay) and Ally (Guthrie) adapt to civilian life, Davy hooking up with nurse Yvonne (Thomas), Ally planning marriage to Davy’s sister, Liz (Mavor). Meanwhile Davy’s dad Rab (Mullan) is hiding a secret from his wife, Jean (Horrocks).
It may lack the subtleties and emotional wallop of a lo-fi musical like Once, but Sunshine On Leith delivers a bright, cheery, big-hearted smile of a movie. If it’s a huge hit, expect SingalongaRunrig at an IMAX near you.
