ART Corporation is releasing Danny Boyle’s cult film Trainspotting in Belarus, thus celebrating its 25th anniversary. All sessions will be held in English with Russian subtitles.
Trainspotting is a film adaptation of the bestselling Scottish writer Irwin Welch, a provocative, grotesque and outspoken film about drug addiction, personal choices in life and its consequences. The film took all the best from the novel: a group of charming antiheroes, cynical and sometimes even vulgar humor and the atmosphere of a broken reality bordering on hallucination. Danny Boyle created a world recognizable from the very first shots with the help of brisk video editing under a dozen musical hits of the 1970s and 90s and perfectly captured the spirit of the times. Despite the gloomy theme and the devastation reigning on the screen, Trainspotting is not devoid of optimism and dashing enthusiasm: the heroes live to the fullest, here and now, not obeying any rules – even to the detriment of others and themselves. An independent film with a modest budget and little-known actors has become a true cultural phenomenon, both firmly rooted in the mid-nineties and not at all obsolete for a quarter of a century.
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.
