It was a triumphant return for Danny Boyle and the Trainspotting boys last week. Jumping back into the world of Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie was a real treat, and the film was able to harness the strange rush of emotions, for audience and players alike, to create something hilarious, dangerous and moving.
Seeking out his old stomping ground, Ewan McGregor’s Renton returns to the place he once called home, and it was a similar return north of the border for Danny Boyle. In this new exclusive featurette Boyle talks about that return, and how it enhanced the message of the film.
T2 Trainspotting Movie Synopsis
Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). 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.
