As a staunch Scotophile, I can’t resist the urge to recommend three of my favourite films based on novels by Scottish writers. They are all dark and intense — in other words, very Scottish. Trainspotting, of course, is a cult classic, and if you loved it, you’ll probably like the other two films too. Check out the trailers below!
Based on an eponymous novel by Irvine Welsh from 1993.
Morvern Callar (2002)
Based on a book by Allan Warner from 1995.
Young Adam (2003)
Originally a book by Alexander Trocchi from 1954.
