Trainspotting!



The film tells a story of the group of friends from Edinburgh, who rejected a socially acceptable way of living in favour of an alternative lifestyle. Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Johny Lee MIller) and Spud ( Ewen Brenmer ) are heroin addicts. Begbie ( Robert Carlyle ) is a violent psychopath. Tommy (Kevin McKidd) limits his addictions to alcohol and cigarettes, but has the same contempt for squeaky clean society as the others. They all live off benefits and occasional petty thefts, spend most of their time wasted and seem perfectly content with the way things are. Or are they only wearing masks to hide anxiety, pain and emptiness felt deep inside?

  15. Shit...this reminds me of this one movie that Leonardo DiCaprio was in about how he was a kid who looked like he was going to leave his shitty life behind with him and his friend on a really nice college scholarship for basketball but eventually started doing drugs and his fight with it...shit, I kinda wanna watch both these movies now.

  23. I read the book year ago before seeing the movie. I liked both and while they are similar the book was darker and less humorous.
