A film adaptation of one of Scotland's best-loved novels - Sunset Song - will be released in the UK in December.

Peter Mullan and former model Agyness Deyn star in Lewis Grassic Gibbon's tale, which was shot on location in Aberdeenshire, New Zealand and Luxembourg.

Published in 1932, Sunset Song follows a farming family struggling to make a living in north east Scotland leading up to World War One.

The release will be on 4 December.

The film, directed by Terence Davies, will get its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival later this month.

In 2005 Sunset Song was named the "Best Scottish Book of All Time" at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

The BBC turned the book into a TV series in 1971.
