Film No. 27 (2017) T2 Trainspotting April 20th.

Film No. 27 (2017) April 20th.  9.20 PM LUNA PALACE, Leederville. 

"You're an addict. You're addicted. Just be addicted to something else". (Renton tries to convince Spud he has a skill, it just needs to be re-aligned).

Danny Boyle, like Renton (Ewan McGregor), is back and there is still a price to pay for the characters he created 21 years ago. T2 is an excellent follow up to T1 but I'm not sure that my enjoyment wasn't accentuated by a re-viewing of the original 48 hours prior to the second. The reboot gave me a fresh insight. So what's the real reason Renton returns to face his "mates"? Has Begbie (Robert Carlyle) mellowed with age? Is Spud (Ewan Bremner) better balanced in life after finding his share? Does Simon (Johnny Lee Miller) have new and dangerous business interests? Boyle answers these queries in a balanced, thoughtful manner. 9GUMS.
