Trainspotting (4K Restoration, screening May 28th)

The film that encapsulated an entire decade, Trainspotting has lost none of its power to shock and amuse in equal measure. Boyle collaborates with screenwriter John Hodge to adapt Irvine Welsh's colloquial and groundbreaking novel, the story of a group of Edinburgh 'skagheads' (heroin addicts), their lives and their endless quest for the next fix.

In his role as redemption-seeking junkie Mark Renton, Ewan McGregor cemented his status as a breakout star with equally strong performances from Johnny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner and Kelly McDonald. The energy of the cast is matched by the film's signature pulsating aesthetic, rich in colour, surrealistic flourishes (the overdose that sinks Renton into the carpet) and vibrant soundtrack choices that mix landmark Britpop with bass-thumping club classics and melancholy hits (Lou Reed's 'Perfect Day'). It all acts as an ironic commentary on life spent on the margins of society, by turns disgusting, magnanimous, repulsive and recognisably human.
