Review of Gregory's Girl
, 22 May 2009
This review is from: Gregory's Girl [DVD]  (DVD)
Quite simply Gregory's Girl is one of the finest British (and more specifically Scottish) films of all time...
Whimsical and made in 1981, it now looks a littled dated in terms of hairstyles and clothes -- however the story is timeless and looks at young love and dating in a Scottish town (Cumbernauld near Glasgow). Oh and there's also some school football in it!!!
John Gordon Sinclair is excellent as the awkward teenager Gregory (most young men will be able to identify with him!) and his first love Dorothy (Gregory's Girl) played by Dee Hepburn with long flowing blonde hair looks stunning (oh to be young again!). Claire Grogan as Susan is also as bubbly and as lovely as ever.
Be warned that the ending is very sudden, but satisfying none the less -- I won't give it away -- you'll need to watch the film!!!
As for the DVD, its in Fullscreen (4:3) format and the sound is only mono which is a little disappointing... However don't let it spoil your enjoyment -- what else can you get these days for less than £3.00!?
