Sunshine on Leith

British actress Antonia Thomas will co-star in the film adaptation of the stage musical Sunshine On Leith, which is inspired by, and features the music of Scottish duo The Proclaimers' album of the same name.

Filming took place in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland late last year, and the completed film is now screening at Eden Court Theaters in Inverness, Scotland, until October 24; and is also playing in Vue Cinema in Inverness, Moray Playhouse in Elgin, and Thurso Cinema in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The project, co-produced by DNA Films and Black Camel Pictures, is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Wild Bill)Stephen Greenhorn, the man behind the musical, also adapted the film's script.

Sunshine On Leith tells the story of two army veterans returning home from war in Afghanistan; one finds his soul mate, while the other loses the girl he left behind.

The film's name is taken from The Proclaimers' second album.

Also starring with Thomas are Peter Mullan, Jane Horrocks, George McKay, Kevin Guthrie, and Freya Mavor.

Thomas is best known for her role as Alisha on TV's Misfits, and most recently starred in ITV's military drama, Homefront.

A trailer for the film is now online and embedded below:
