Director Danny Boyle's internationally-successful adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel about a group of young Edinburgh heroin addicts.

Ewan McGregor stars as Mark Renton, the most reflective member of a group that also includes the compulsive womaniser, Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and the hapless Spud (Ewen Bremner). Renton, Spud and Sick Boy's issues with drugs alternatively irritate and amuse their friend, Begbie (Robert Carlyle), a periodic psychopath whose outbursts of violence are one of the many factors that convince Renton to leave for London in the hope of starting a new life.

“Trainspotting really is, a rough, sometimes fantastical, often brutally realistic and harrowing but at its heart an adventurous and strangely upbeat and positive look at urban life, even with all the other ugly organs that come with that.” Mike McCourt, BanterFlix.

1996. UK/USA. Director: Danny Boyle. Cast: Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Kelly McDonald. Duration: 1hr 33mins. Cert: 18.
