+ intro by Matt Glasby, author of Britpop Cinema: From Trainspotting to This Is England
Choose cinema, choose this film, choose spending 93 minutes in the company of these reprobates…
Dir Danny Boyle
With Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, Kevin McKidd
One of the most popular British films to come of out of the 90s, Trainspotting is the energetic, stylish portrait of a group of drug-addled Edinburgh friends, one of whom tries to get clean and abandon his hedonistic lifestyle. Danny Boyle’s cult hit, based on Irvine Welsh’s novel, provided distinctive, unapologetic characters, a brilliant soundtrack and scenes that will linger in your brain long after the credits have rolled.
