In 1969, two substance-abusing, unemployed actors retreat to the countryside for a holiday that proves disastrous.
Two out-of-work actors -- the anxious, luckless Marwood and his acerbic, alcoholic friend, Withnail spend their days drifting between their squalid flat, the unemployment office and the pub. When they take a holiday "by mistake" at the country house of Withnail's flamboyantly gay uncle, Monty they encounter the unpleasant side of the English countryside: tedium, terrifying locals and torrential rain.
Featuring a break-out performance by Richard E Grant.
UK, 1987, 107 min; Dir. Bruce Robinson
