Withnail & I

Withnail & I

Available on HBO Max
London. The ’60s. Two unemployed actors-acerbic, elegantly wasted Withnail (Richard E. Grant) and the anxiety-ridden ”I” (Paul McGann) – drown their frustrations in booze, pills, and lighter fluid. When Withnail’s Uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths) offers his cottage, they escape the squalor of their flat for a week in the country, but soon realize they’ve gone on holiday by mistake when their wits – and friendship – are sorely tested by violent downpours, less-than-hospitable locals, and empty cupboards.
Starring Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths
