Stone of Destiny

Stone of Destiny retells the true story of four young Glaswegian students who, in 1951, outwitted the British authorities in their successful attempt to take back the Stone of Scone - a beloved symbol of Scottish pride - and return it home.

Starring as Ian Hamilton - one of the students, a dedicated nationalist who reignited Scottish national pride in the 1950’s - is Charlie Cox (Cassanova). Also stars Billy Boyd (Lord Of The Rings), Robert Carlyle (The Full Monty), Peter Mullan (On A Clear Day) and Academy Award-winner Brenda Fricker.

This recreation of a half-assed prank by ’50s students to liberate the fabled Stone of Scone from Westminster Abbey is laughably seen here as a pivotal episode in the fight for independence.

While it definitely plays better as a made-for-television epic, Stone of Destiny is head and shoulders above the majority of trifle doing the rounds.

I'm a film distributor and I wanted to release this film but I didn't offer enough. I hope it does well, it's a great story based on actual events, and enormously pleasing to this viewer.

A really enjoyable retell of a group of youth who showed the older, now more conservative Scots, what national pride really means. And the response from the nation had to all worth it. A definite watch.
