Trainspotting: Page to Screen

Director Danny Boyle put himself on the map with his 1996 black-dramedy classic, Trainspotting, as part of our brand-new Page to Screen series.

Heroin addict Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) stumbles through bad ideas and sobriety attempts with his unreliable friends -- Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Begbie (Robert Carlyle), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Tommy (Kevin McKidd). He also has an underage girlfriend, Diane (Kelly Macdonald), along for the ride. After cleaning up and moving from Edinburgh to London, Mark finds he can't escape the life he left behind when Begbie shows up at his front door on the lam, and a scheming Sick Boy follows.

Based on the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, Trainspotting walks a challenging tightrope between hilarious and devastating to become one of the very best films of the 1990s.
