Sunshine on Leith (2014) is a musical drama set in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is an adaptation of stage musical by the same name. Most of the songs in the movie are from The Proclaimers band.
The movie is a musical journey in the life of two British soldiers recently returned from Afghanistan to reunite with their families and loved ones. What happens in their lives is the context of this musical drama. The story has nothing new to offer but Music is the main purpose for which people go and enjoy these movies. Sunshine on Leith shows life of three couples and how past has affected their life in future? Can they conquer whatever is thrown to them by life is the theme of the musical?
The thing about musicals is that you should have listened to songs before to enjoy the same fully. It also depends on how much you like and understand the lyrics of the songs?
The songs are sung by the star cast in the movie only which are George MacKay, Kevin Guthrie, Freya Mavor, Antonia Thomas. Some of the songs are really peppy and makes you want to dance right in there. Overall, it's a romantic musical which brings you hope in your relationships to relive and fall in love all over again...
The movie closes with a Flash Mob where you will see all kinds of people dancing and enjoying the same.
