You can fool most of the people, most of the time. Jono McLeod’s wildly entertaining, jaw-dropping documentary hybrid tells the outrageous story of Scotland’s Great Pretender, Brandon Lee. In 1993, Brandon enrolled at Bearsden Academy. He seemed a little different from the other 16-year-olds. A little wiser, a little more worldly perhaps and more in need of a shave. He eventually became one of the cool kids and a bright student with a very promising future. Then people started to discover that Brandon was not who they thought he was.

Returning to his old school, McLeod has captured the memories of fellow pupils who recall their time with Brandon and the impact he made. Even they didn’t realise the half of it. The film becomes a glorious voyage of discovery through the stories of class 5C, a pitch perfect performance from Alan Cumming, wonderful animation, a cast of famous voices and a stonking soundtrack led by Lulu’s title song. You have to see it to believe it.
