Come dressed as Uncle Monty or Withnail for a chance to win a prize for the best dressed characters. Plus have a drink and some cake in our quaint English village café display. You will never watch this cult classic the same way again.
Camden Town, the arse-end of the sixties. Two struggling, unemployed actors decide some respite is in order and so depart their miserable flat for a week in the Lake District – one that will involve rain, booze, minimal supplies, a randy bull and an even randier Uncle Monty.
Based on the real-life experiences of former actor turned writer/director Bruce Robinson, WITHNAIL and I has become one of cinema’s most fondly remembered comedies. A cult film in the truest sense that has also become a classic.
Perfectly cast – with career-defining roles for Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths and Ralph Brown – and crammed with irresistibly quotable dialogue, WITHNAIL and I is a sheer delight.
Event produced by Tim Burden and funded by the BFI & Film Hub NI.
