This is to win back his daughter and wife. While all this is happening he is unraveling under pressure of his addictions, lies and his scheming.
Director: Jon S. Baird
Actors: James McAvoy, Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots, Jim Broadbent, Joanne Froggatt and Shirley Henderson
Year: 2013
Genre: Art-House, Comedy, Crime, Drama and International
Conclusion: 3/5
This is an adaptation of a novel by Irvine Welsh. All the films that I have watched James McAvoy in he has never failed. You could just watch him for hours and never get bored. It is not a film that you can just sit down and relax to. Very hard to like. You have got to know what you are getting yourself into by watching this. Love Jim Broadbent and Jamie Bell. Even though it is a comedy it is more like black humor. James McAvoy once revealed in a interview that he would drink up to half a bottle of whiskey every night so that his character looked rough and hungover.
