Hello everyone, on behalf of us all here at Oban Phoenix, we hope you're staying as safe as possible during these trying times. If you are looking for something to watch tonight, here is our #StaffFilmRecommendation for #SelfIsolation.

Today we are recommending: "Sunshine on Leith", a beautifully heart-warming story set in Edinburgh based on the stage hit of the same name, featuring music by The Proclaimers. 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 in Afghanistan. Both struggle to learn to live a life outside the army and to deal with the everyday struggles of family, jobs and relationships.
This film is available to rent/buy on Amazon Prime streaming service or to rent/buy on iTunes.
We hope you like this #StaffFilmRecommendation, let us know in the comments below if you're watching it or even if you know and love the film as much as we do! - Suzanne :)
