T2 Trainspotting

We really should have watched this film while we were in Glasgow.

Down south the transformation Scotland has undergone in the past twenty years has been partly ignored. This sequel doesn't just catch up with the human characters after two decades, but the national character too. And it's a nation with a renewed confidence.
