Storyline

A man makes a phone call to his dying father. Two brothers meet at their father's funeral. DAVID has come up from London. FRASER lives in the village in Scotland he grew up in. On a journey to discover their father's inheritance, which they are told in his will is located somewhere on the Isle of Skye, they set off in their father's old VW van and head north. This brings arguments, comedy, conflict and bitter memories as they are forced to confront their past and each other. When they pick up a hitchhiker TARA, she fascinates them both, and brings them to breaking point. She leaves them, taking the van, and DAVID heads off through the land of Skye to find their destination. What they discover there drives them to a point of no return. Written by Anonymous

Impressive first feature
10 March 2012 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Intelligently written (and also nicely underwritten), well acted, and strikingly shot and directed for a reported budget of about $7,000.

This Scottish film is about two very different, and distant, angry, brothers forced into taking taking a road trip together to find out just what their father left them – all they get at first is a key and an enigmatic note about the need to travel to Skye to find the answer.

I did feel the ending (which I won't reveal) was a letdown for the film, feeling far less sophisticated, believable and complex than most of the movie itself. But while that was enough to put a ding in the experience, it was far from enough to ruin it.
