The Last King of Scotland competition
WIN! The Last King of Scotland on DVD
To celebrate the release of the superb Oscar-winning film The Last King of Scotland onto DVD we have 5 copies of the film up for grabs! Featuring Forrest Whitaker's Academy Award winning performance of Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, The Last King of Scotland is not to be missed.
It was supposed to be a wild adventure in a far-off country, but when a naive young doctor arrives in 1970's Uganda - hoping for fun, sun and to lend a helping hand - he finds himself instead on a shocking ride into the darkest realm on earth. Befriended by the charismatic new leader, Idi Amin, and appointed as his personal physician, Nicholas Garrigan is originally blinded by his larger than life and charming persona. But when the terrible truth of his despotic rule is revealed, he must fight for both his life and soul against one of the cruellest leaders in history.
Deftly mixing fact and fiction and startlingly resonant with today's world, the film features a tour de force performance from Forest Whitaker as Amin and carves two unforgettable portraits: one of a charismatic but psychopathic ruler who ravaged his country and the other, of a witness to history who finally finds the courage to make a stand.
