T2: Trainspotting – A Sequel Worth Watching for Quality and Nostalgia

First, there was an opportunity… then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by since the original Trainspotting film, directed by Danny Boyle. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends: Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Much has changed but much remains the same. I was so taken with this film because (1) I hadn’t expected it to be any good and it was and (2) It made me quite emotional due to the fact that I sat there mulling over friends, time and paths chosen. This was all very much amplified upon returning home to an 18-year-old babysitter who, when asked what I saw at the movies, replied: “Hmmmm… Trainspotting… I don’t think I’ve heard of that. Who’s in it?” I couldn’t speak. Watch the trailer. Watch the film wherever you can catch it.
