The Movie Of The Week is 'Gregory's Girl', a classic Scottish coming-of-age movie that I've recently come to appreciate, after watching begrudgingly on repeat as a child in school. It's been a while since I've seen any Scottish films featured in the limelight.
Gregory Underwood (Gordon John Sinclair) is a graceless teen soccer player on a hapless team. When a girl named Dorothy (Dee Hepburn) shows up to play, things change quickly; Dorothy becomes a top player, while Gregory and the rest of the team become enamored of her. Gregory works up the courage to invite Dorothy on a date. She accepts, but Gregory finds he's been deceived into taking out another girl. Despite his confusion, Gregory eventually warms to the situation.
