Bill Forsyth’s acclaimed classic Local Hero hit blu-ray on Monday 16 September with a commentary by the mighty Mark Kermode. Movies In Focus is giving 3 lucky readers the chance to win a copy on blu-ray.
Mac (Peter Riegert) is a young executive who flies to Scotland to purchase an entire town on behalf of the oil company he works for, which is run by near-psychotic Happer (Burt Lancaster). The townsfolk seem happy enough to part with their town, although they drive a hard bargain. Meanwhile Mac, who was wrongly thought by his boss to be of Scottish descent, begins to take a liking to the little village. Bill Forsyth directs – in his usual quirky manner – this gentle comedy.
Available for the first time on Blu-Ray complete with special features, including an audio commentary with Bill Forsyth and film critic Mark Kermode.
