This Week

This week, Apr 28, 29, 30, May 3 at 7:30pm, we show T2 Trainspotting.

Rating: 18A for detailed substance abuse and sexual content, as well as coarse language and nudity.

Drama. It has been 20 years since Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) stole from his friends half of the £16,000 they'd made in a drug deal and fled the country. He made a decent – but unfulfilling – life for himself in Amsterdam, and returns to Edinburgh, Scotland, to make contact with those in his former life. Daniel "Spud" Murphy (Ewen Bremner) continues to struggle with his heroin addiction. Simon "Sick Boy" Williamson (Jonny Lee Miller) is now a cocaine addict and runs the Port Sunshine pub he inherited from his aunt. Francis "Franco" Begbie (Robert Carlyle) is serving a 25-year prison sentence and is denied parole due to his violent temper. --Wikipedia
