    "My Life so Far" - Scottish film if you're locked down

    Maybe this should be in the "media" thread but more people may find it here
    It's a whimsical ("Downtonesque?) film about well-to-do Scottish life in the 1920s and is based on the biography ("Son of Adam") of Sir John Forman OBE, long associated with various charitable and governmental bodies in the arts. Sorry it comes in pieces and the sound track's not great but the Spanish subtitles are free!
    You can see how Scottish culture has always had to contend with ....the outside World.
    And you can have some fun finding errors and anachronisms.

    My Life so Far

    Alan, thank you for sharing the film. I could not make out from what tartan the boys kilts were made, but they appeared to be what we would now call "weathered" tartans, would you agree?
    In reading another thread, I thought I understood that weathered tartans first began to appear in the 1950s, but the film is based in the 1920s. Still enjoyed the film.
    Cheers,

    David

    Yes, David, that's certainly an anachronism.
