Renton, deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends.
Danny Boyle’s explosive film tracks the misadventures of young men in Edinburgh trying to find their way out of joblessness, aimless relationships and drug addiction. Some are successful, while others hopelessly are not. Based on Irvine Walsh’s novel, Trainspotting melds grit with poetry, resulting in a film of harsh truths and stunning grace.
“Every aspect of the film seems meticulously orchestrated by the director, Trainspotting being a flawlessly paced ninety-five minutes of excellence. Perhaps most impressive, however, is his ability to blend pop culture into his disturbing and evolving world, as well as his perfection of the needle drop.” The Film Magazine
