Highland Cinema in Fort William has been granted an exclusive week-long theatrical run of the new movie My Son, providing the only chance to see the film on the big screen in the UK from tomorrow (Friday).

A ground-breaking film, where both actor and audience uncover a mystery at the same time, it was filmed entirely in Lochaber around Loch Leven, Glencoe and Ballachulish.

Driving in the heart of the Highlands, Edmond Murray (James McAvoy) receives a call from his ex-wife Joan (Claire Foy), in tears. Their seven-year-old son has gone missing from a campsite. Edmond sets out to find answers, as their worry and desperation rises.

This film features a unique performance from McAvoy, who was not given a script and had to improvise his scenes as he discovered the truth in real-time.

Rated 15, My Son will also be showing at Highland Cinema for a second week after its exclusive run next week.
