July 23rd 8pm... 'Withnail and I' script to screen with Bruce Robinson


with Bruce Robinson

July 23rd 8pm...

Bruce Robinson, writer and director of Withnail and I joins the LSF lineup for a script-to-screen with one of the most iconic and beloved British films ever made.

Watch the movie at home, read the script then attend the session at the festival (buy the screenplay here from Amazon).

In ‘certain’ company, ‘Withnail’ is one of most quotable films ever made…

“We’ve gone on holiday by mistake.”

“I demand to have some booze!”

“How can it be so cold in here? It’s like Greenland in here. We’ve got to get some booze. It’s the only solution to this intense cold. Something’s got to be done. We can’t go on like this. I’m a trained actor reduced to the status of a bum. I mean look at us!”

“Nothing that reasonable members of society demand as their rights! No fridges, no televisions, no phones. Much more of this and I’m going to apply for meals on wheels.”

“We want the finest wines available to humanity, we want them here and we want them now!”

“Listen, we’re bona fide, we’re not from London.”

“Look at my tongue. It’s wearing a yellow sock.”

“Right you fucker, I’m going to do the washing up.”

Utterly. Utterly. Unmissable.
