In an incredible twist of fate, a Scottish doctor (James McAvoy) on a Ugandan medical mission becomes irreversibly entangled with one of the world's most barbaric figures: Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker). Impressed by Dr. Garrigan's brazen attitude in a moment of crisis, the newly self-appointed Ugandan President Amin hand picks him as his personal physician and closest confidante. Though Garrigan is at first flattered and fascinated by his new position, he soon awakens to Amin's savagery - and his own complicity in it. Horror and betrayal ensue as Garrigan tries to right his wrongs and escape Uganda alive.
The Last King of Scotland by Giles Foden is the Whitbread Award-winning novel, now a major film.
About the Author
Giles Foden, who grew up in Africa, is the chief reviewer for the Guardian. In 1998 Foden won the prestigious Whitbread First Novel Award for The Last King of Scotland, which was followed in 1999 by Ladysmith and in 2002 with Zanzibar - books which, according to Alan Massie writing in the Scotsman, 'establish him as the most original and interesting novelist of his generation'.
