This is a film that underwhelmed me the first time I saw it, two years ago. However, on this, my second viewing, I think it’s a masterpiece.
This film is hilarious! And with so many quotable lines I wish I had a better memory.
It’s 1969 and struggling London actors, Withnail and Marwood, tired of the filth they live in and their uneventful lives, decide to rejuvenate themselves with a jaunt in the country. But without the modern conveniences with which they are accustomed, their friendship is put to the test.
Richard E Grant is superb as the ever-intoxicated Withnail and Paul McGann is brilliant as Marwood.
