Sunshine on Leith

Sol Mound Sunshine In Leith D

This is one for the musical movie-buffs! Dubbed 'McMamma Mia', this heart-warming feel-good movie musical is set to the upbeat music of the Proclaimers and was largely filmed around Edinburgh.

Telling the story of a tight-knit family, and the three couples bound to it, the film focuses on the joys and heartache that punctuate all relationships. And they do it all while singing to the euphoric music of The Proclaimers.
