Danny Boyle's brilliant, exhilarating, era-defining junkie drama returns to the big screen. In an Edinburgh that's far removed from the tourist trail, cynical, smart aleck heroin addict Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) and his loser pals live a self-destructive life fuelled by petty crime and drugs. After a near-fatal overdose, our anti-hero relocates to London in the hope of going straight. But his past is quick to catch up with him. One of the key British films of the 1990s, Danny Boyle's daring, dazzling, mordantly funny drama is adapted from Irvine Welsh's controversial bestseller. Ewan McGregor delivers a career-making performance as Renton, while Robert Carlyle eats up the screen as the psychopathic Begbie. Populated by memorable characters, crackling with energy and propelled by a timelessly great soundtrack, 'Trainspotting' remains a thrilling assault on the senses that cries out to be experienced again at Cineworld as we eagerly await upcoming sequel, 'T2'.
