24th March
written by Adam

It’s been roughly twenty years since Renton (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewen Bremner), ┬áSickboy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) ran together through the streets of Edinburgh as junkies, raising Cain, capturing a generation’s adolescence and self destruction in the mid 90’s. Now, with Renton’s return “home” friends, foes, life’s reflections, women, and oh yes… drugs await him with open arms and clenched fists, what good can come from this? Written by John Hodge and Irvine Welsh, and Directed by Danny Boyle, this incredibly insightful and introspective examination of life is unapologetic and honest to a fault, showing the natural and organic progression of several characters that for a moment helped define Generation X– a combination of dark humor, self loathing, love, friendship, and the struggle to make something of ones self. Rich with detail, color, texture, cinematography and editing that Boyle is now famous for, T2 brings everything to the fight and leaves no stone unturned in a poetic brilliance, blending nostalgia and fresh material in a satisfying smorgasbord. Sharp acting all round this ensemble continues to reach new heights, and, with another infectious soundtrack your next iPod mix is ready for prime time. Not to be missed, T2 Trainspotting is rated R
