Ewan McGregor puts in a star-making performance (alongside Robert Carlyle and Jonny Lee Miller) as a Scottish heroin addict in Danny Boyle’s brilliant adaption of Irvine Welsh’s novel.

The iconic poster adorned every 90s bedroom, and the brilliant soundtrack and “Choose Life” speech struck a chord with a young generation longing to throw off the shackles of work, parents and the ruling Tory party.
