Slideshow: "Ecstasy" Inspires a Look Back at the Cinematic Dance Floor
Do you feel like dancing? You will after watching the portrayal of Scotland’s drug-fueled club scene provided by Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy, which is now available on VOD. Directed by Rob Heydon and featuring compelling performances from its lead actors, Adam Sinclair and Kristin Kreuk, the film follows two star-crossed lovers (he’s a drug smuggler; she moonlights for Scotland Against Narcotics), as they attempt to kick their mutual habit.
