Gaelic King was founded in an enchanting and rarely documented period of Scottish history. It takes some freedoms by adding fantastic elements, but it is executed in a delicate and resourceful way.
Inevitably, a low-budget feature does not have the brilliance and precision of a Hollywood film, but from some angles it adds to the depth of the gripping world it is embodied in. The characters are wonderful and they are all unique. There are comprehension stories like some good movement sequences and even unexpectedly humorous moments (mostly colored Druid character Lachlan).
The result is strong and satisfying, and it is refreshing to have this independent film that ends with a strong hope.
