Product description

Product Description

David MacKenzie's adaptation of Alexander Trocchi's novel. Whilst travelling on a barge between Glasgow and Edinburgh, drifter Joe (Ewan McGregor) and his boss Les (Peter Mullan) discover a woman's corpse in the water and Joe pulls her out. On the surface, Joe does not appear to be distressed by the situation - even with all the police investigation on-going - and gets on with his work on the barge. But his behaviour starts to become erratic when he embarks on an affair with Leslie's wife Ella (Tilda Swinton) and flashbacks reveal his link to the dead woman (Emily Mortimer).

From Amazon.co.uk

David Mackenzie's Young Adam, based on Alexander Trocchi's existentialist novel, demonstrates that Ewan McGregor means what he says about using high-paying Hollywood roles to finance appearances in intelligent low-budget movies. As Joe, an aspiring 1950s writer whose alienated selfishness destroys everyone around him, he is quietly authoritative. Tilda Swinton and Emily Mortimer are hardly less good as the two women in his life, and Peter Mullen as Les, the older friend whom he betrays, is touching and macho in the same breath. Les's canal barge is as much of a character as any of the people--this is a film in which the characters' occupations matter. Similarly the 1950s period detail is stunning, as is the gloomy cinematography: the high relief shadows and occasional visual distortions give the film a real visual style of its own that works well with its literary subject matter.

On the DVD: Young Adam is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen with Dolby 5.1 sound. Special features include an informative making-of featurette in which the cast members talk about their passionate commitment to the project, the theatrical trailer, an audio track of David Byrne's original score, and a sequence of Ewan McGregor narrative voice-overs that runs with stills on screen. --Roz Kaveney
