T2: Trainspotting

Director: Danny Boyle.
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Kelly Macdonald. UK 2016. 117 mins.

Two decades after director Danny Boyle’s groundbreaking drama set in Edinburgh’s dark, druggy underbelly, the four friends drawn from Irvine Welsh’s novel return to make amends… or seek revenge. Begbie (Carlyle) has just been released from jail, Renton (McGregor) is making an emotional homecoming, and Sick Boy (Miller) and Spud (Bremner) are awaiting them both with very mixed feelings. Based on Welsh’s follow-up novel Porno, and again scripted by John Hodge, Boyle’s film has all the grit and casual pathos of the original while acknowledging that the main characters, including Kelly Macdonald’s Diane, have grown up over the past 20 years… or have they?
