Withnail and I is an extraordinary British film. Released in 1987 to empty cinemas, it has gradually gained cult status through video and DVD sales.
So much so, that compere Phill Jupitus introduced it to the Old Vic audience last night as “the greatest British film ever made”.
Allegedly the last time either Paul McGann or Ralph Brown (Danny) were willing to watch the film. I'll admit I'm a little sad. Here's hoping they might yet change their minds.
