Storyline

Sunshine on Leith is based on the sensational stage hit of the same name, featuring music by pop-folk band The Proclaimers. The film follows the stories of Davy and Ally, who have to re-learn how to live life in Edinburgh after coming home from serving in Afghanistan. Both struggle to learn to live a life outside the army and to deal with the everyday struggles of family, jobs and relationships. Written by Anonymous

A Massive Surprise
5 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

Im a guy of the 80,s and although i thought the proclaimers were good, i never really became a fan. Don't get me wrong i enjoyed there music and style , but it never generated a passion in me. But one dark lonely night while it was raining outside and the trees were rattling on the windows, i thought i would watch Sunshine on Leith ( I may have had a lager or two) , And all i can say is WOW , it was awesome, it was on par with the commitments, which is no small achievement, the song that it derived its title from "Sunshine on leith" sung by "Jane Horrocks" was amazing , I loved it. Thank you for an amazing film and a wonderful soundtrack. Thank you aqain for a wonderful Film
