A Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.
A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.
Adam and Eden fell in love as teens despite the fact that they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years after a forced separation, Adam sets out on a dangerous quest to reconnect with his love.
A "must see" film not only for entertainment value, wondering what is going to happen next, but a look into Irvine Welsh's world one may not be familiar with. The chemistry amongst the cast, especially between the leads, Adam Sinclair (Lloyd) and Kristin Kreuk (Heather), was heartfelt and real... anyone can relate to one character or another at some point, it truly hit home. Billy Boyd (Woodsy) performs an impromptu array of genius; while Carlo Rota's (Solo) performance can do no wrong, even as the bad guy. Most people who have seen the pre-theater screenings conclude that the cinematography was authentic and breathtaking and draws you in to be a part of the scene. As well, the soundtrack featuring Cold Play, Primal Scream, the Mahones, in addition to the dance music with performances by Tiesto, Orbital and Bedrock, displays perfect timing and are excellent!
