This marvelously charming drama concerns curmudgeonly Scottsman Rory McNeil, who is forced to leave his home on the isolated Hebridean islands to seek medical treatment and reconnect with his estranged son in America. Now faced with the culture shock of San Francisco, and softened by meeting his adorable redheaded grandchild (one of the cutest but not cutesy onscreen babies), Rory takes a few last stabs making the most out of life, when he’s not cracking wise, confusing people with Gaelic, or locating a good stiff drink. Outstanding performances from Brian Cox as Rory, JJ Feild as his son, Thora Birch as the daughter-in-law, Rosanna Arquette as a beguiling museum curator, make this an absolutely winning story about second chances and family bonds.
