MPAA Rating: PG   Contains:[Adult Language, Suitable for Teens]

Summary: The sophomore film of Scottish director Bill Forsyth was his first international hit, a typically quirky comedy set amongst colorful Scottish teenagers. Gregory (John Gordon Sinclair) is a normal, gangly, hormonally-challenged student who, like his pals, has begun to discover the charms of the opposite sex, particularly those of Dorothy (Dee Hepburn), the new girl in school and a talented soccer player. Dorothy joins the team, and Gregory instantly becomes smitten with her. Gregory's affections are a given in spite of the fact that Dorothy is a better player than most of the boys on the hapless team, and her presence inspires a great deal of angst and embarrassment. Gregory is prepared to go to humiliating lengths in order to win Dorothy's attention, but it doesn't quite work out as he anticipates. The winner of a BAFTA Award for Best Screenplay, Gregory's Girl was followed 18 years later by a sequel, Gregory's Two Girls (1999). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Lucia Bozzola

The second film by Scottish writer/director Bill Forsyth, Gregory's Girl has all of the gentle charm and quirky, unsentimental emotion (not to mention a befuddled person dressed as a penguin) that most Hollywood teen films lacked in the ensuing two decades. Set in a nondescript Scottish town, Forsyth's tale features a group of teens who actually seem like real people rather than idealized icons as they humorously muddle through the trials of adolescence. Breathing new life into the age-old high school concerns with sports and love, John Gordon Sinclair's gawkily sincere Gregory falls hard for the female athlete Dorothy. Rather than a threat to Gregory's nascent masculinity, Dee Hepburn's Dorothy is an alluringly robust beauty. Gregory's friends and his winningly sagacious kid sister provide breezily eccentric support, while sneakily pretty Clare Grogan proves to Gregory that you can indeed dance while lying on the ground. An award-winning success in the U.K. and deemed "irresistible" by The New York Times, Gregory's Girl became a sleeper hit in the U.S., definitively establishing Forsyth's gift for genial, oddball comedy. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi
