McDonald at the Movies: Gregory’s Girl

Wed, Aug 7 / 7 pm
Directed by Bill Forsyth
1980, UK, 91 min

Once a month, comedian and co-founder of Kids in the Hall, Kevin McDonald will present a film handpicked from the archives of comic history.

Warm, poignant, and very funny. Kevin McDonald introduces a new 2K restoration of the second feature from the director of Local Hero, Bill Forsyth. Gregory Underwood is a graceless teen soccer player on a hapless team. When a girl named Dorothy (Dee Hepburn) shows up to play, things change quickly; Dorothy becomes a top player, while Gregory and the rest of the team become enamored of her. Gregory works up the courage to invite Dorothy on a date. She accepts, but Gregory finds he’s been deceived into taking out another girl.

Reviews

Gregory’s Girl is charming, innocent…very funny. The movie contains so much wisdom about being alive and teenaged and vulnerable.
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Irresistible. This enchanting comedy is one of the cheeriest unsentimental reports on the human condition since Truffaut’s Small Change... It floats effortlessly over its landscape, seeing all from a marvelously cockeyed perspective all its own.
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times.
One of the most loved British films of all time.
– Jane Graham, The Guardian
