Dir: David Mackenzie
Starring: Jamie Bell and Ruth Milne
A disturbed boy goes to Edinburgh to discover the true cause of his mother’s death
This gritty and atmospheric drama is based on the 2001 Peter Jinks novel of the same name and showed that, after Billy Elliot, Jamie Bell could star in a very, very good film. It features a couple of scenes overlooking Edinburgh Waverley station with ScotRail Class 170 ‘Turbostar’ DMUs and an IC225 Mk4 set present. There are also a couple of similar ‘over the camera’ shots of a train with a miniature snowplough fitted locomotive on the rear (presumably a train of Mk.1’s with a Class 37 diesel) and scenes filmed onboard what appears to be a Class 314 EMU.
