      • only focuses on the story of Amin, but also towards the relationship between the young doctor Nicholas Harrigan with Amin. The leader Idi Amin is turned on by Forest Whitaker (Phone Booth). Whitaker as Amin to be altered appearance in this movie from the movement and of course, speaking accents. So, no one when he finally won an Oscar category for best actor in the Academy Awards last year. The young doctor Nicholas Harrigan role by James McAvoy, who we know through The Chronicles of Narnia. Chemistry between the two leaders is shown by both these actors. Amin wife who affair with Nicholas, Kay, performed by Kerry Washington (Ray), supported also by Adam Kotz as Dr. Meritt and serial stars The X-Files, Gillian Anderson as Sarah, his wife.

        For fans of the film drama based on the historical story, the film works Kevin McDonald is of course not to

        be missed. We will serve about the history of Uganda during Amin government, in addition to the story of friendship between Amin and Nicholas is quite interesting. From the point on, of course, Whitaker’s performance on best display in this movie, but this can be balanced with the appearance of bright McAvoy. The strength of this movie lies in the two central figures of this, but the film does not become boring, because in addition to telling the relationship between the two leaders, the film insert some of the political concerns that occurred at that time in Uganda.

        If you’re like movie-quality dramas, then The Last King of Scotland is a movie that you should watch. Ongoing story that besides showing two men’s friendship, we get a few stories about the political situation that occurred in Uganda during Amin, newly in power in the country which is in the black continent.
