WITHNAIL AND I | Out Now

It’s 1969 and London isn’t exactly swinging for struggling, unemployed actors Withnail (RichardE. Grant) and “I” (Paul McGann). Living amongst the crumbling squalor of a Camden flat their uneventful existence is fuelled by cheap drugs, bad booze and lighter fluid. When Withnail’s eccentric Uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths) offers them his cottage retreat, both Withnail and “I” decide to escape to the glorious English countryside for a carefree weekend. But what they find is less than idyllic as they’re forced to contend with disastrous weather conditions, hostile locals and the amorous motives ofa certain Uncle Monty. It’s the end of the greatest decade in the history of mankind and there’s going to be a lot of refugees. Starring Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann in career defining roles, Withnail and I is one of the most hilarious and iconic comedies of British cinema. Written and directed by Bruce Robinson, this twisted, timeless and acerbic masterpiece is a genuine cult classic.
