Withnail & I

Two unemployed actors, the acerbic, elegantly wasted Withnail and the anxiety-ridden Marwood (the “I” of the title), drown their frustrations in booze, pills and lighter fluid. When Withnail’s Uncle Monty offers them his cottage, they escape the squalor of their London flat for a week in the country, but soon realise their mistake when their wits and friendship are sorely tested by violent downpours, less-than-hospitable locals and empty cupboards.
