Regarded as one of the most influential films of the 1990s, director Danny Boyle’s hyper-kinetic heroin culture classic Trainspotting turns 25 this year.
Originally released in the U.S. in July 1996, the film helped launch the careers of Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, and Kelly Macdonald and earned an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Based on the bestselling book by Irvine Welsh, Trainspotting follows Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, Begbie and their pals as they scam their way through Edinburgh and London, mixing high-energy hilarity with an honest portrayal of heroin culture’s sordid reality.
Trainspotting is available now to own on digital platforms. It's one of the iconic films that made your parents cool.
