With the new year upon us, I am looking forward to the sequel to Trainspotting (1996), some twenty-plus years later after the original was released. The film stars Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller. Since its release, Director Danny Boyle has enjoyed a wealth of fame. And it looks like the band is still intact for the sequel, too.
The gritty original film is set in Edinburgh's drug scene. Based on the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, Trainspotting follows a group of heroin addicts in depressed Edinburgh and their struggles and mayhem. The film is gritty, stylish, and gripping right from the memorable opening scene.
I recommend you watch or re-watch the original before the sequel is set to be released in American in February.
