Gregory’s Girl is one of the most beloved Scottish film ever made. Writer-director Bill Forsyth (Local Hero, Comfort and Joy) beautifully portrays teenage awkwardness and optimism in a film that captures new town life like no other. Forsyth achieved a tender rapport with the youthful ensemble cast led by John Gordon Sinclair, Clare Grogan and Dee Hepburn: the entire cast sparkles amidst Cumbernauld’s concrete architecture, the Cumby Fields and on the red ash football pitch. “The film was about adolescence and about being young and the pains of growing. I thought to myself, why don’t we set the film in an adolescent town? I remember saying to someone, ‘Even the trees in Cumbernauld are teenagers so everything fits.’” – Bill Forsyth.
