The last King of Scotland is the fascinating story of a Scottish
doctor who became the personal physician to Idi Amin, dubbed one of
the world's most dangerous dictators. This captivating tale begins
in England where a young doctor decides to step out of his fathers
footsteps and become a doctor in war torn Uganda during the 1970's.
During a chance visit to a remote African town, Idi Amin befriends
the doctor and through his charisma, persuades him to follow him to
the capital of Uganda.
Soon his life is thrown into turmoil as he is dragged into the
dangerous world of Idi Amin which gives the viewer a brief insight
into the atrocities that plagued this country during the 1970s.
Whitaker does a brilliant job at recreating this African dictator
and also his love for Scotland and what starts at an almost comedic
look into the life of Idi Amin eventually ends in a awe-inspiring
drama movie that gives you a look into man's darkest hour. Riveting!
