The heroin-chic fad of the 90s never looked so glorious as in the film adaptation of Irvine Welshs novel Trainspotting. Here, a young Ewan McGregor plays the lead junkie, an endearing character named Renton, desperately trying to rise out of Edinburghs seedy, underground drug scene. Visually dazzling and comically brilliant, this movie not only hit cult status, it received an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay and won a slew of other awards. But parents neednt worry; McGregors brutal detox scene will hopefully help steer impressionable young minds away from ever dabbling in the hard stuff.
