The Last King of Scotland  +5
There is something special about stories told based on true stories. Here we have a young Scottish man who graduated as a doctor and fears a lifetime working with his father and therefore escapes to Uganda. Perhaps he should have just worked with his dad, but instead he helps save a nation.
After helping the new president with a sprained hand and by shooting a cow he becomes the personal physician to the president of Uganda. Although he at first refuses he eventually accepts the post and ends up helping as one of the president’s closest advisers.
This is a well done movie. I give it a full 5 out of 5 stars, it being based on real life pushed it to the fifth star.
