Front Row Flashbacks is diving into the Scottish, drug-fueled, modern-day classic, Trainspotting. We’re gonna get into how this movie simultaneously shows the allure and extremely destructive power of hard drugs. This movie kickstarted the careers of director Danny Boyle, who gave us films such as 28 Days Later and Slumdog Millionaire, and actor Ewan McGregor. Join Ryan, Jay, and Erin as we dive into the emotional highs and lows and the punk rock, manic energy provided in Trainspotting. Choose Life my friends!
