16 Years of Alcohol 2003
A beautifully shot art house film, this low-budget, Scottish drama is a strong directorial debut by Richard Jobson. Trainspotting stars Ewen Bremner and Kevin McKidd are featured in the film, with McKidd in the role of the troubled protagonist, Frankie, whose tragic life unfolds on the tough streets of Edinburgh in three acts: childhood, adolescence and adulthood.
As Frankie Mac is beaten to death in a darkened alley, he reflects on the events of his life that have led him to this moment. Flashing-back to his youth, we witness a young boy who develops a taste for alcohol as his family-life disintegrates. Years later, we catch up with Frankie again; this time to see him as a member of a small gang fixated on violence and crime. Eager to change for the love of a woman, Frankie decides he must turn his back on his life, his friends and, perhaps hardest of all, alcohol.
