The Last King of Scotland (2006)

Brief Nudity

Top Scene


James McAvoy is Nicholas Garrigan, a young Scottish doctor who has traveled to Uganda to work at a rural hospital in The Last King of Scotland (2006), so named because "King of Scotland" was one of the self-appointed titles of Ugandan madman Idi Amin. Played by Forest Whitaker, Amin has just become the Ugandan president when he comes to Garrigan for treatment for an injury. Amin develops a soft spot for the doc, and he takes him on as his go-to guy and personal M.D. But Garrigan begins to see Amin for what he is: mean. Really, really mean. Amin kills the health minister, then snatches up the doc's passport when he tries to skedaddle. With nothing else to do but the deed, Garrigan decides to do one of Idi's wives . . . and he chooses wisely, because Kerry Washington has the finest heinie in all the land. Based partly on historical fact, The Last King of Scotland is a dark, smart, terrifying film—and Whitaker won an Oscar for his turn as a true ten-ton tyrant. Watch out for jillion-buck Gillian Anderson as a doctor's tried-and-true whom our randy M.D., clearly a man of distinction, tries to screw.
