Storyline

In his warm, Scottish coming-of-age film, gangly teen Gregory and his school-mates are starting to find out about girls. He fancies Dorothy, not least because she has got on to the football team (and is a better player than he). He finally asks her out, but it is obviously the females in control of matters here, and that very much includes Gregory's younger sister. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

The headmaster (Chic Murray) is interrupted as he is playing whimsical tunes on the school piano during the lunch break and responds "Off you go, you small boys". This scene was included after director Bill Forsyth heard Murray playing a piano in the school gym to entertain the rest of the cast between filming his scenes. The piece that he plays in the film is his own composition, entitled "Chic's Tune". See more »

Goofs

In the dancing-lying-down scene, Gregory first appears lying to Susan's left (right as we see it). In the final shots of this scene, the positions are reversed and Gregory lies to Susan's right. See more »
