Braveheart - The Movie
Braveheart

DVD - VHS also available.
Men in kilts moon the English. The males in our household watch this movie over and over again, whenever they feel down and discouraged.
Rob Roy
Rob Roy

Liam Neeson plays Highland hero Rob Roy MacGregor in this rousing period piece - fabulous swordfighting. Tim Roth got an Oscar
nomination as one of the bad guys (he is sooo smarmy). Jessica Lange costars.
Local Hero
Local Hero

Peter Riegert, Burt Lancaster
directed by Bill Forsyth
Uproarously funny cult classic about a Houston yuppie's business trip to a small Scottish seaside town. Don't miss it.
Mary, Queen of Scots
Mary, Queen of Scots

Outstanding acting by Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson as Mary and Elizabeth, respectively - but don't look for historical accuracy. A super film.
VHS only
Brigadoon
Brigadoon

Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse dance their hearts out - but Van Johnson steals the show.
You never know what might happen in the magical highlands of Scotland. A musical classic.
Macbeth - Royal Shakespeare Company
Macbeth / McKellen, Dench, Royal Shakespeare Company

Filmed on stage,
Sir Ian McKellen,
Dame Judi Dench
1978
An excellent performance, traditional Shakespeare
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Maggie Smith's Oscar-winning performance shines in this masterpiece about an Edinburgh teacher in the 30s. A classic.
Chariots of Fire
Chariots of Fire

Scot's Olympic runner Eric Liddell sticks to his guns in this award-winning movie. Later, Liddell served as a missionary in China, dying in a Japanese internment camp during WWII. A true son of Scotland.
Highlander - Endgame
Highlander - Endgame

You're either a Highlander fan or you're not. I'm not, but Connor and Duncan are definitely easy on the eyes.
Gregory's Girl
Gregory's Girl

Bill Forsyth's charming tale of young love in Scotland. The DVD has two audio tracks - one with
the broader Scots accent
and one in plainer (for us) English.
Comfort and Joy
Comfort and Joy

Another off-beat comedy from
Bill Forsyth - this one involving
feuding ice-cream lords
1984 VHS
The Master of Ballantrae
The Master of Ballantrae

Errol Flynn fights for Bonnie Prince Charlie. Filmed on location, this is one of Flynn's best.
1953
My Life So Far
My Life so Far

Growing up in an eccentric Highland family during the 20s and 30s - lovely cinematography, quirky characters.
Lassie Come Home
Lassie Come Home

As a true scion of Scotland, our collie, Rascal, insisted we include this classic film (just kidding). This is a great old movie, fairly true to the wonderful book. You'll cry.
1943
Katherine Hepburn as Mary of Scotland
Mary of Scotland

How interesting that Katherine Hepburn plays Mary - as Hepburn was Bothwell's family name.
Again, not historically
accurate (it's a movie!)
1930s VHS B&W
MacBeth - Orson Welles
Macbeth

Orson Welles plays fast and loose with Shakespeare - but if you're a Welles fan you'll want to have it.
Jeanette Nolan as Lady MacBeth
1948
Loch Ness
Loch Ness

This is a great little family movie starring Ted Danson - it was on TV a few years ago. He plays a scientist looking for Nessie and finding romance - lighthearted and delightful.
Finding Forrester - Sean Connery
Finding Forrester

This heart-warming film is included as just one example of Sean Connery's work - Scotland's most famous actor has starred in dozens of wonderful movies throughout his career - and we have them all! Sean Connery Movies
