Not only did Danny Boyle manage to put Irvine Welsh's «unadaptable» novel 'Trainspotting' on celluloid, but he did it with such kinetic, frenetic and phenomenally stylish aplomb that he also managed to craft one of the 90s most singularly defining films — and stars of its fantastic ensemble.

In this 2017 sequel, Boyle returns as director and catches up with the affable Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) who, after two decades abroad, returns to Scotland and reunited with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie. With Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, Kelly Macdonald.

«T2 TRAINSPOTTING adds an intoxicating, emotionally resonant postscript to its classic predecessor, even without fully recapturing the original's fresh, subversive thrill.» (Rotten Tomatoes)

«With a pulsing soundtrack and an ending scene that cleverly ties the whole thing back to the first picture, T2 is a sequel that is at least the equal of the revered original.» (Seattle Times)

«The first TRAINSPOTTING was about heroin. The second is about another dangerously addictive drug: Nostalgia.» (ScreenCrush)

T2 TRAINSPOTTING (Danny Boyle, 2017 / 117 mins / 18A) First there was an opportunity......then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home.They are waiting for him: Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie. Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.
