Movie Info

Cultpop raconteur Aidan Moffat sets out to explore Scotland's past by rewriting and touring its oldest songs. But he doesn't count on running into 79yearold force of nature Sheila Stewart - a travelling balladeer who upturns Moffat's folk assumptions. He believes the old songs are ripe for updating. She does not. With Stewart's wrath ringing in his ears, Moffat embarks on a road trip that finds him dressed for battle in a Highland graveyard, caught between feuding monsterhunters at Loch Ness, and singing in a dismissive farmer's kitchen - before facing Stewart in his hometown of Glasgow for an unlikely final showdown, in this funny wee film about music and death.

Every now and again a film comes out of nowhere and knocks you sideways.

It warmly records humour, eccentricity, love and bereavement -- and conflict, too.

Dec 17, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

A loose and occasionally amiable documentary about Scottish folk music, Where You're Meant to Be isn't half as charming as it thinks it is.

Oct 10, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The real highlight is Moffat's on-stage banter: affable, fun, foul-mouthed.

Aug 15, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Affectionate, playful and irreverent in spirit.
