Norascore, man

Okay, I know that I ain't no Ewan MacGregor, but, hey, I am Scottish... so at least we have that much in common. Not being able to get out and about as much as I would like (or even at all), I have been forced to look deep into myself for daily photos. This is something that has been in my mind for a while... well, okay, I only just thought about it if the truth be known. Clearly a rip-off, with no original thought whatsoever, it is my tribute to one of my favourite films. I'm sure you can guess which one it might be. I remember when this came out. I was living in Lisbon at the time, and there seemed to be a whole load of Scottish themed films that came out at roughly the same time: Braveheart, Rob Roy, Shallow Grave, and then this. Trainspotting was a wonderful tonic after the exciting, but historically inaccurate, Braveheart, and served to show my Portuguese friends that Scotland was a modern country with all the social problems that all modern countries have. I never missed an opportunity to see it again, and ended seeing it about nine times in various Lisbon cinemas. Luckily for me, the Portuguese don't dub films, they subtitle them, so I was able to catch all the humour that my Portuguese friends missed. Certainly takes me back.... but whatever happened to Ewan MacGregor (Renton)!?!
