Description

It's 1969 and London isn't exactly swinging for struggling, unemployed actors Withnail and "I." Living amongst the crumbling squalor of a Camden flat, their uneventful existence is fuelled by cheap drugs, bad booze and lighter fluid. When Withnail's eccentric Uncle Monty offers them his cottage retreat, both Withnail and I decide to escape to the glorious English countryside for a carefree weekend. But what they find is less than idyllic as they're forced to contend with disastrous weather conditions, hostile locals and the amorous motives of a certain Uncle Monty.
