KEVINFEST FILM FESTIVAL: LOCAL HERO

SAT, APR 13 / 7 pm
DIR. BILL FORSYTH
1983 | UK | 111 MIN

Though he only made a handful of films (Gregory’s Girl, Comfort and Joy and Housekeeping) director Bill Forsyth was the master of wry, gentle humour. Texas oil tycoon Felix sends Mac, a junior exec to Scotland to persuade the villagers to sell their town so Knox Oil can build an oil refinery. The town’s residents are only too happy to sell but Mac soon falls in love with the landscape and realizes what he has been missing in his life
