In rural 1840's Scotland, Gavin Dishart arrives to become the new "little minister" of Thrums's Auld Licht church. He meets a mysterious young gypsy girl in the dens and to his horror Babbie draws him into her escape from the soldiers after she incites a Luddite riot. But unknown to Gavin, Babbie is more than she seems. And they must overcome her secret, the villagers' fears of her, and worst of all, Gavin's devotion to his mother's sensibilities, before they can openly declare their love. Written by
thanx a lot for warning me about this film. I watched it through because it was on and it was 1 in the morning, etc., but would assiduously avoid it in the future unlike many other older films, like those of Tom Walls of 1930's British cinema or even some of Katherine's other films from the '30's like Morning Glory &c. It may be that these actors from the 30's were so restricted in their performances that they were required to behave in such a stilted fashion but I doubt it. It is much more likely that it is the actual facets of the story itself which dictate their behaviour. Oh for a spirited director to reshape the fabric of this film in a more natural way so that the characters can live and the storyline convey its underlying message in a more frank and honest manner. Bits of it sound like ned flanders for god's sake ! thanx for the opportunity to comment
