Withnail & I

Written and directed by British filmmaker Bruce Robinson, this beloved comedy examines the lives of two artists living on the fringes of society. With outstanding and iconic performances from UK actors Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann and Richard Griffiths, the film looks at the meaning of friendship as well as the passing of time. Co-produced by HandMade Films.





Two struggling actors - Marwood (Paul McGann) and his caustic, alcoholic friend, Withnail (Richard E. Grant) - spend their lives moving between their filthy flat, the pub and the unemployment office. When they’re invited to Cumbria by Withnail's flamboyant uncle, Monty (Richard Griffiths), they encounter boredom, frightening locals and endless rain in Britain’s countryside.
