This is the story of Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) and his so-called friends, a bunch of losers, liars, psychos, thieves and junkies. Hilarious but harrowing, the film charts the disintegration of their friendship as they proceed seemingly towards self-destruction. Mark alone has the insight and opportunity to escape his fate but then again does he really want to "choose life"?
Irvine Welsh's darkly comic first novel screams to life into a motion picture. Critically lauded and controversial, choose the best British film of the 1990's; choose trainspotting.
