A storm of a film about being too big for a small town!
5 July 2000 | by (Leighton Buzzard) – See all my reviews

This has nothing whatsoever to do with Trainspotting. It's a drama about a group of friends who have reached a focal point in their education and wonder what is it they want from their life, friends and their town.

Trainspotting is an anti drugs related film. This film contains no drugs if memory serves me right. Habitants of similar sized and socially unactive towns should be able to relate to parts of the film.

The film isn't one of the greatest made, but it's got some great lines, great moments and some great cinematography
