Dear Kay, and everybody who can’t shake those post-Edinburgh Yarn Festival blues, and everybody who loves a good simultaneous laugh/cry,
Sunshine on Leith is a 2013 musical set in Edinburgh with the incredible music of The Proclaimers larded throughout it.
I can’t wait to walk the streets of Edinburgh with these characters. How many places will I recognize?
The catch, of course, is that this movie is available to stream only in the UK on Amazon.co.uk and iTunes UK. Such irony! The only solution, clearly, is to get back to Edinburgh so I can watch this movie set in Edinburgh.
Here’s a little excerpt from the movie, featuring The Proclaimers’s biggest hit, “Five Hundred Miles” and an awesome flash mob—remember flash mobs? So 2013!
Clearly I could use some recommendations for other Scottish movies to watch—beyond Harry Potter, Outlander, and Trainspotting.
