    A comedy in the classic style
    Certificate: PG
    Running Time: 106 mins
    Retail Price: £17.99
    Release Date:

    David Puttnams`s first production after `Chariots Of Fire` and director Bill Forsyth`s follow up to `Gregory`s girl`, this delightfully observed comedy looks at the conflict between Texas oil company and the canny residents of a Scottish fishing village whose land is needed by the Americans for their North Sea oil base.

    This warm and affectionate story is a comedy in the classic style with a surprising twist in the tail.
