Làn fhìrinn na sgeòil (The truth is in the story). Seachd - pronounced 'Shack' – is a feast for the eye, filmed and produced on the Isle of Skye. It's a feast for the ear too, albeit in Gaelic. Former Wall Street banker Miller shrewdly focuses on the twinkling eye and accomplished storytelling of Aonghas Padruig Caimbeul as grandfather of young Angus, a nine-year-old seeking to prove his parents were murdered. Despite terrific reviews ('excellent' said the Sunday Times), Bafta didn't Oscar-nominate it for best foreign-language film and won't say why. Watch and wonder.
