Now a major film directed by Danny Boyle reuniting the cast of Trainspotting

Years on from Trainspotting Sick Boy is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realise his ambitions within the Adult industries, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton. Still scheming, still scamming, Sick Boy and Renton soon find out that they have unresolved issues to address concerning the unhinged Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other.

T2 Trainspotting was previously published as Porno.

Praise for T2 Trainspotting

“Funny, appalling, frightening”

Mail on Sunday

“A brilliant satirical study of the ugly dynamic which draws together predators and prey”

Sunday Telegraph

“Not for the fainthearted... Highly entertaining”

Sunday Times

“Funny and eloquently obscene”

Daily Telegraph

“A worthy sequel... A touching love song to the possibilities and limits of friendship. Charming, funny and sly, Porno is a good poke at all kinds of pretence and moral tidiness”

Evening Standard

“Captures and celebrates the hangover of youth”

Observer

“It was brilliant”

Observer
