This ’60s rites of passage memoir chronicles the dissolute misadventures of unemployed actor Marwood (Paul McGann) and outrageous fellow thesp and quasi-mentor Withnail (Richard E. Grant). Detailing their shambolic, alcohol-fueled stay at a ramshackle Lake District cottage owned by portly homosexual Uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths), Robinson’s film richly deserves its cult reputation, and made Grant’s career.
