Movie: The Last King of Scotland

Went for a bite to eat with Amanda and Agnes after work last night, we decided to go watch The Last King of Scotland. Forrest Whittaker is exceptional in the lead role as the Ugandan Dictator Idi Amin. James McAvoy is also excellent as Dr James Garrigan, who by chance becomes Amin’s personal physician

Forrest Whittaker’s performance as Amin is terrifying, I’ve said for a long time that Whittaker is an amazing actor and he proves that in this performance. Towards the end the film becomes quite grisly as you might expect given its setting. Nonetheless it was an excellent film, and well worth watching.
