Teenage knucklehead Gregory falls hard for Dorothy, a hotshot female player who takes his spot on the boys’ school soccer team. Prodded by the advice of his smart-mouthed 10-year-old sister, Gregory does make his move, but there’s behind the scenes feminine conspiracies en route.
Intuitively alive to the vulnerabilities of adolescence, Bill Forsyth’s coming-of-age film, now a perennial classic, was an unlikely smash hit. Culled from the Scottish Youth Theatre, the impressive cast bring a lively authenticity to their characters’ comical mishaps and relatable growing pains.
