Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.
Episode 080 – Withnail and I (1987)
Scott and Steven are joined this week in the Balaban Sound Studio by Anthony (Glass Onion – On John Lennon podcast) for this week’s review…the finest comedy known to humanity featuring mistaken holidays, Camberwell carrots and youths weeping in butchers shops.
Two out-of-work actors -- the anxious, luckless Marwood (Paul McGann) and his acerbic, alcoholic friend, Withnail (Richard E. Grant) -- spend their days drifting between their squalid flat, the unemployment office and the pub. When they take a holiday "by mistake" at the country house of Withnail's flamboyantly gay uncle, Monty (Richard Griffiths), they encounter the unpleasant side of the English countryside: tedium, terrifying locals and torrential rain.
“Look at my tongue, it's wearing a yellow sock.”
