Sir Sean Connery’s welcome return to the screen arose when he realised that St Andrews University helped to shape the world. From its foundation in 1413, granted by a Spanish Pope on the run from Avignon, its graduates include the key poets of the Scottish Renaissance, three signatories of the American Declaration of Independence, and Sir James Black, the pioneer who invented beta blockers. With a hauntingly evocative score by the talented Rory Boyle, this is the third film directed by Murray Grigor featuring Hamid Shams’ inspired all-weather photography.
