“Don vs Lightning” is a darkly humorous short film directed by Johnny Burns and Pier van Tijn of Big Red Button about a grumpy elder man named Don who keeps getting struck by lightning while he’s trying to live a sedate life in the Scottish Highlands.
All Don wants is a quiet life in the Scottish Highlands. Unfortunately the universe has other plans. …
Based upon a true story, the film stars Peter Mullan as Don and Joanna Scanlon as Maggie, his well-intentioned, but rather nosy neighbor.
It’s hard to tell what he fnds more uncomfortable: sadistic persecution by a capricious universe, or the concerned attention of the people in his town.
