 “Demonstrates Forsyth's uncanny ability for making an audience sense that something magical is going on, even if that something isn't easily explained”. - Janet Maslin, New York Times

An American oil tycoon (Burt Lancaster) decides to buy up a Scottish beach in order to build a refinery - to a decidedly mixed response from the inhabitants.

In addition to Lanacster you'll also spot many familar faces in the cast including Peter Capaldi, Fulton Mackay, John Gordon Sinclair, Jenny Seagrove and Denis Lawson.

Filmed in a variety of beautiful Scottish locations and featuring a memorable score by Mark Knopfler, Local Hero is an utterly charming, and surprising, fish-out-of-water story.
