For Screen and Country

Local Hero (#37)

May 20, 2019
The next fifth of the list begins with a quaint little character study/environmental film in Bill Forsyth's charming opus Local Hero. Brendan and Jason open their hearts to this film's tiny little Scotland locale and its vast array of charming characters, the fairy tale aspect to the story, Burt Lancaster's super bizarre aversion therapy and much more.
Plus: The guys roll the dice to find out what movie they'll be covering next week. Were you charmed by Local Hero? Does it capture small-town life pretty well?
