Celebrating its 40th anniversary – and having had a brilliant response after featuring as our Mystery Film in January – we are delighted to screen this new restoration of Bill Forsyth's "timeless masterpiece" (Mark Kermode).

Teetering on the edge of a huge deal, Texas oil executive Mac (Peter Riegert) is sent to a remote Scottish seaside village to arrange the construction of a new refinery.

His mission is to acquire the land. But gradually he’s charmed by the locals and his outlook begins to change.
