Take a look at the movie trailer here: and then get yourself long to the Lamp for 7 o’clock on Friday the 16th of November.

The film follows the stories of Davy and Ally, who have to re-learn how to live life in Edinburgh after coming home from serving as soldiers in Afghanistan.

Time Out describe the movie as ‘a wet,sloppy dog kiss of a film’ and the BBC’s Mark Kermode says ‘I shed a tear within the first 10 minutes, and spent the rest of the movie beaming like a gibbering, love-struck fool.’

Tickets are £4.00 (£3.00 for concessions) and are available here:
