Scottish locals vs Donald Trump's golf course

Britcom classic Local Hero reckoned plucky Scots could take on corporate America and win. Anthony Baxter’s passionate doc, set on the same stretch of Aberdeenshire coastline, offers a gut-wrenching reality check.

At stake: a luxury golf course, which Donald Trump is building against evidence of environmental ruin. A gaggle of gutsy residents stands firm but Trump’s no fan of Ealing-esque whimsy; instead, the billionaire’s bully-boy tactics, condoned by acquiescent police and politicians, are making locals’ lives hell.

Baxter’s shocking footage captures conditions akin to siege warfare, and he’s not exempt from intimidation.

A vital, visceral antidote to Trump’s slick PR machine.
