Trainspotting (T1)

Trainspotting (T1)
Saturday, July 8, 2017 Un-Common Cinema Presents: Trainspotting (T1)

"By turns cheeky, surreal, exhilarating and stomach-churning." -TV Guide

Trainspotting Director Danny Boyle captures an era in Edinborough, Scotland, in the 1990s. As Marc Renton and the rest of the main characters struggle with heroin addiction, their lives descend from their roles as criminal yet sexy heroes to the depths of their shared nightmare.

After the showing of Trainspotting, we will discuss at length how the movie educates us in the middle of our current heroin epidemic, the role of the addict, and the visible cost of heroin to our community.

Free! Light refreshments.
2-4 pm in the Saxe Room of the Main Library
We will be screening the film and exploring it like a book discussion group.
