This gritty British black comedy starring Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle deals with the dark themes of crippling drug addiction and its devastating consequences. The story features Ewan McGregor in the role of the protagonist, heroin addict Mark Renton, who makes an attempt to fix his life only to be mercilessly pulled back into the world of drug addiction by his old friend circle. The academy-award nominated indie film had a huge impact on popular culture upon its release, and it remains to this day as one of the most highly acclaimed, highly rated British indie films of all time.
