The key to McGregor's success, he says in this detailed and well-documented portrait, is his blend of on-screen charisma, a determination to be an "actor" not a "star," and his ability to forge propitious relationships with other filmmakers. Adams expertly documents the successful teaming of McGregor with director Danny Boyle and writer John Hodge, who created Shallow Grave and Trainspotting. McGregor has not only starred in 15 pictures in five years, but has chosen his roles well, appearing in such acclaimed films as The Pillow Book, Emma and Velvet Goldmine. These choices have created a strong, loyal following with film buffs.
