Gregory’s Girl

4

The beautiful game...

Three decades on, Gregory’s Girl looks like a time capsule of an era too innocent to have ever existed.

John Gordon Sinclair is the adorkable Scot besotted with sporty schoolmate Dee Hepburn, but it’s the supporting characters that really make director Bill Forsyth’s BAFTA-winning script sparkle – from Gregory’s wise wee sister to the enterprising tweens flogging pastries in the boys’ bogs – while dramatic sunsets offset the bland new-town setting.

Lightning struck twice for Forsyth with Local Hero two years later but not, alas, for meh 1999 sequel Gregory’s Two Girls.
