Excellent showcase of new Scottish acting talent!
24 November 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film very much and have been anticipating it's release for quite some time now.

This is the second independent feature film from Scottish filmmaker Lee Hutcheon. 'The Clan' is a deep, gritty Celtic tale based in the heart of the Scottish Highlands that really does show a darker side to these quiet little villages we so often see on our postcards and shortbread tins. The film which is based around feuding Clans and a forbidden love packs a punch in terms of the young acting talent that is showcased within each of the scenes. Hutcheon's talents for pulling the best out of his actors definitely shines in this film as every character within the story seems to deliver in more ways than one. Once again I think this film was achieved on limited funding and is yet another remarkable achievement for the Scottish Director. The film definitely shows many sides to this filmmaker's abilities, and yet again raises the question, 'What could he really achieve with proper funding and support?''The Clan' is a deep, emotional story, with stunning Scottish locations and an amazing Celtic Soundtrack.
