Paul McGuigan – The Acid House (1998)

Irvine Welsh adapts three stories from his ‘Acid House’ collection for the screen. In ‘The Granton Star
Cause’, Boab Coyle (Stephen McCole) is happy playing for his local football team and dating girlfriend
Evelyn. When he loses both, however, along with his job and home, he turns to drink – only to meet God
(Maurice Roëves) in a pub. ‘A Soft Touch’ tells the story of Johnny (Kevin McKidd), an easily
manipulated man who loses his girlfriend to violent and psychotic neighbour Larry (Gary McCormack).
In ‘The Acid House’, raver Coco (Ewen Bremner) finds that he has swapped places with Tom, newborn
baby of middle class couple Rory (Martin Clunes) and Jenny, after an acid trip.
