Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with the occasional hint of professionalism.

Episode 057 – Gregory’s Girl (1981)

Join Scott and Steven as they head north of the border to review Bill Forsyth’s movie from 1981 , Gregory’s Girl.

“Twelve tons of cornflakes pass under here every day. It's a well-known fact”

In his warm, Scottish coming-of-age film, gangly teen Gregory and his school-mates are starting to find out about girls. He fancies Dorothy, not least because she has got on to the football team (and is a better player than he). He finally asks her out, but it is obviously the females in control of matters here, and that very much includes Gregory's younger sister.
