If you can't remember the 60s... don't worry. Neither can they.
London. The 60s. Two unemployed actors - acerbic, elegantly wasted Withnail (Richard E Grant) and the anxiety-ridden I (Paul McGann) drown their frustrations in booze, pills and lighter fluid. When Withnail`s Uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths) offers them his country cottage for a week, they escape the squalor of their flat for a holiday that will test both their wits and their friendship, as they contend with violent downpours, less than hospitable locals... and empty cupboards.
