Product Description

The complete screenplay for the wickedly funny cult film.

Wherever picks of favorite films of directors, critics, writers and other film aficionados are published, Withnail and I is invariably on everyone's list. Bruce Robinson, nominated for an Academy Award for his screenplay of The Killing Fields and one of international cinema's most original talents, is perhaps best known for writing and directing this hilarious and touching film about two eccentric, unemployed actors in London in the last months of 1969. To coincide with the 10th anniversary of this underground classic, Robinson has written a typically sharp and witty introduction to accompany the screenplay, published now for the first time. This book is destined to become a collectors' item and a must have for all devotees of this savage black comedy.

"An intelligent, beautifully acted and gloriously funny film ... beautifully scripted,indecent, honest, and truthful, it's a true original."-Time Out Film Guide

"Withnail and I is a full-fledged transatlantic underground phenomenon-a cult."-GQ
