Scotch on the Rocks

Move over Trainspotting, Orphans balances despair with heart

For all the Scots-impaired out there, Orphans, like The Acid House, features English subtitles to clarify the thick accents of the actors. However, viewers should be warned that not all of the language is transcribed accurately: "get pissed" is left as is, despite meaning "get drunk" as opposed to "get mad," but "aye" is frequently translated as "all right," and "I need a fag" is written "I need a smoke." Fortunately for the audience, the faces of the actors require very little interpretation, and the easily offended should note that "fucking cunt" can be understood in virtually any accent.
