Withnail & I

11:10pm Friday, April 29 on F4

Part of the Films for Life season. Bruce Robinson’s witty and perceptive first film as writer and director follows the hilarious drink-and drug-fuelled misadventures of two struggling actors (Richard E Grant and Paul McGann) in a squalid London flat and an isolated cottage in the Lake District during the last months of 1969. The excellent supporting cast includes Richard Griffiths, Ralph Brown and Michael Elphick.
