From filmmaker Bill Forsyth (Local Hero) comes his 1980 comedy-romance Gregory’s Girl, presented on Blu-ray from Film Movement with a 2K restoration.

Following an eight-game losing streak, a desperate (and sexist) Glasgow school soccer team coach reluctantly accepts hotshot female player Dorothy (Dee Hepburn). Although demoted to goalie, teenage knucklehead Gregory (John Gordon Sinclair), falls hard for his new teammate. Prodded by the advice of his smart-mouthed 10-year-old sister, Gregory ultimately makes his move…

A leading Eighties sleeper hit, Gregory’s Girl, the Glasgow-born Forsyth’s second feature film, would later be voted #30 in the BFI’s list of 100 greatest British films of the 20th century.
