The Last King of Scotland
We saw a great movie last night. It is called The Last King of Scotland and it starred Forest Whitaker and James McAvoy. It is about a young, naive Scottish doctor who goes to Uganda during the 1970s. He ends up becoming Idi Amin's personal physician. At the beginning, he is caught up in Idi Amin's charisma and leadership style, but he soon sees the real personality unfold. I don't want to give too much away, but it is a movie that is packed with extraordinary acting and disturbing images. I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.
