  • Bill Forsyth's heartwarming comedy deals with materialistic American corporate execute Mac (Peter Riegert), who travels to the small Scottish town of Ferness to negotiate buying land to allow the construction of an oil refinery. Mac's best efforts are trumped by a local beachcomber (Fulton Mackay) who refuses to budge. Local Hero ingeniously examines how a small Scottish community is bound together by its shared experience in one of the funniest culture-clash comedies in cinema history.
