Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment UK is delighted to announce the DVD release of the Oscar-winning heart thumping thriller The Last King Of Scotland which chronicles the fictional, fiery relationship between controlling Ugandan dictator, Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker) and British medical aid worker, Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy). The DVD will be available from 14th May 2007.

Starring Forest Whitaker, James McAvoy, Gillian Anderson, Kerry Washington and Simon McBurney, The Last King Of Scotland is based on Giles Foden's award-winning novel of the same name and is directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void, One Day in September) from a BAFTA-winning screenplay by Peter Morgan and Jeremy Brock.

Since its UK theatrical release on January 12 2007, The Last King Of Scotland has received international acclaim, sweeping the board with 23 awards and a further 12 nominations. Forest Whitaker has won more critics' awards for his performance than any other leading actor in 2006, 16 in total, including an Academy Award, a BAFTA, a Golden Globe, a SAG Award, and a BIFA for his monumental portrayal of Idi Amin.

After embarking on a wild adventure in a far-off country, a naive young doctor, Nicholas Garrigan (James McAvoy) arrives in 1970's Uganda where he finds himself on a shocking ride into the darkest realm on earth: the human heart. This is the story of The Last King Of Scotland, a powerful thriller that recreates on screen the world of Uganda under the mad dictatorship of Idi Amin (Forest Whitaker).

Deftly mixing fact and fiction and startlingly resonant with today's world, the film carves two unforgettable portraits: one of a charismatic but psychopathic ruler who ravaged his country, and the other of a witness to history who finally finds the courage to make a stand.
