You cant help smiling,
This review is from: Sunshine On Leith  [DVD] (DVD)
When I went to see this at the cinema I was a bit unsure as the film seemed to be hyped - and that normally means trouble. In this case all the hype wasn't wrong - this is a truly great feelgood movie. The Proclaimers music fits brilliantly into the story - there was no need for a shoehorn here to come up with some unbelievably contrived story.
I got the DVD as soon as it came out and I have watched it a number of times since. There aren't many extras on the DVD - just a handful of deleted scenes but the last one, the alternate ending makes the DVD worth it just for that. I thought the final scene in the film was great - one of those times when you just smile and join in with the singing. The alternate ending uses the same song but stages it completely differently and has more of a comic element.
Its sheer brilliance and I would recommend it to everyone.
