I thought the film was fantastic, powerful, very moving. A story of a strong community holding together, a story about love and a story about a communities sadness, but also a story of hope – with a message than can be received across Scotland, Britain and across the world. I can’t imagine a place where it wouldn’t be enjoyed. – Johann Lamont, MSP, Leader of the Scottish Labour
Party

I really liked the film, beautifully shot, really well directed – but most importantly the acting was incredible, fantastic – so much heart to it – their roots in Fife just shone through. – Cllr. Deidre Brock, Depute Lord Provost, Edinburgh City Council, SNP.

I found it very powerful and very moving. I like the way that it tells women’s stories as well as the impact on the whole community, the role that women play and the strength that they bring to building the kind of Scotland we want to live in. – Ann Henderson, STUC Assistant Secretary, Policy & Campaigns.

It struck me that The Happy Lands presented women as part of the struggle, a big part – and they kept it up through the whole film. As a women I thought it was a really good film – uplifting and emotional. It showed that people really could fight back. – Angela McHugh, Glasgow

I thought it was a great film, so relevant. Change the costume – change the period of history and it would be up to date, In particular for me, as a women, I really liked the way it recorded women’s history. It was great to see the contribution that women made and how crucial they were to the whole experience. Really really liked it. – Audience Member, Glasgow
