Trainspotting

Ewan McGregor stars in this by-turns shocking and hilarious comedy-drama about heroin addicted Scots, the sophomore feature of filmmaker Danny Boyle ("Shallow Grave"). He's Mark Renton, a junkie who loves his drug of choice and the exciting lifestyle it requires. Still, Mark knows his future's not very bright, so he kicks the habit and gets a real job, but his buddies Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) drag him reluctantly back into his old ways. Based on the novel by Irvine Welsh.
