Danny Boyle
Very strong language, strong sex, violence, hard drug use

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. Renton enjoys some success remoulding himself as an estate agent in the English capital, but it isn’t long before his Edinburgh friends catch up with him. Begbie and co. need the money Renton has saved from his job to finance the drug deal that could make them all rich…

Relive the 1996 cultural phenomenon on the glory of the big screen, returning to cinemas in a gleaming 4K restoration, supervised by director Danny Boyle. Featuring an iconic soundtrack which will invigorate your lust for life, and career-making performances from its ensemble (which also includes Kelly MacDonald and Shirley Henderson), this unflinching classic is a masterful adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s radical novel.
