Movie Review

The Last King of Scotland (2006)

The Last King of Scotland

The movie (The Last King of Scotland) was about the Late Uganda Military Ruler Idi Amin and the friendship with a young Scotland doctor who comes to Uganda to help in an NGO. The doctor initially reluctant to take the President’s Physician job, then get lured by the benefits and status it provides and soon becomes Amin’s trusted adviser – little did he know that closeness to power centres are always a double-edged sword. The movie depicts the doctor’s emotional dilemma between his Western Principals and friendship with the President. It doesn’t attempt to be a historic record of all events of Idi Amin’s rule. Nice to watch.
