This cult comedy classic follows a couple of destitute young actors living in drunken squalor in 1969, the twilight days of swingin' London. The elegantly wasted Withnail ( the astounding Richard E Grant in a breakout performance) Is a depraved dandy without money or ambition, while his anxious sidekick is the younger and more impressionable Marwood ( Paul McGann). The demented duo drown their minds in booze and pills until finally escaping to the country, staying in the home of wealthy, lecherous Uncle Monty, who later takes a liking to young Marwood! But this retreat fast turns a miserable nightmare as violent weather, hunger and hostile locals bring on more madness.

This British comic milestone comes in a new widescreen print, with a cacophony of special features.
