BFI Flipside presents… acclaimed director Bill Forsyth’s (Gregory’s Girl, Local Hero) hilarious directorial debut.

Unemployed teenager Ronnie (Robert Buchanan, Gregory’s Girl) and his hapless pals spend their time hanging around the rainy parks and dingy cafes of Glasgow, but their world is about to change when Ronnie hatches a plan to make them all rich by stealing a job-lot of stainless steel sinks.

Hilarious and inventive, this zero budget debut from celebrated director Bill Forsyth (Gregory's Girl, Local Hero, Comfort and Joy) provides an authentic depiction of 1970s Glasgow youth culture, and is presented here for the first time in a new HD transfer complete with the original Glaswegian dialogue track

With a great young cast steel the show.

A British comedy hist caper set in a fictional town of Glasgow, (no relation to any real place known by that name). In the deprived city landscape a group of desperate young men plan a robbery of Stainless Steel sinks, along the way we find that at least one of them enjoys exploring his female side. From the mind of Bill Forsyth, BAFTA award winner. With a great young cast. I saw this film on release and fell in love with it, and now to own a hi-res copy that I can view is great. The story and characters have a timeless quality at the same time being a slice of social history that is I think important to be preserved.
