Movie Details

The first film by Mick Davis, The Match is a contemporary romantic comedy set in the idyllic village of Inverdoune nestling in the Scottish Highlands. Wullie Smith is the shy milkman who carries the physical and emotional scars of a childhood tragedy and who is in love with Rosemary, the beautiful daughter of Bill Bailey, a local farmer with a curious affection for cows. Rosemary has returned briefly to Inverdoune after five years away at a university and intends to leave again to pursue her career in the big city. Wullie's impossible dreams are fueled by his friend Buffalo, a semi-alcoholic American who was left behind when his USAF unit moved on. The village has only one street, but two pubs: Benny's Bar, owned by Big Tam, meeting place of the eccentric clientele, and L'Bistro, a place of sterile modernity owned by narcissistic Gorgeous Gus. The soccer teams of each bar have been carrying on a feud for 99 years and Benny's Bar has been losing all the games. But it is the result of the centenary game that determines the future of Benny's Bar. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, Rovi
