Why you may have heard of this film: It stars Ewan McGregor and is directed by Danny Boyle. It also is a popular film because of its presentation of drugs and the lifestyle surrounding them.
Adapted from a book, it chronicles the lives of a group of young people as they deal with drugs, sex and growing up in Edinburgh.
A great cast. McGregor is awesome in the lead, and supporting cast really helps fill out his character.
Well-dressed sets that add a lot to the story and the personalities that inhabit them. The shooting is all very modern British, which isn’t bad.
Good drug effects, but the music choices are hit and miss.
A good movie, especially for its keen sense of youth culture. Although comedic at times, it is a definitive warning against hard drug use.
Good for a young crowd. A must watch for British film geeks.
