Shallow Grave

Genres: Thriller, Mystery / Suspense, Crime / Criminals, Crime Drama, Criterion Collection, United Kingdom

Cast: Kerry Fox, Christopher Eccleston, Ewan McGregor

Director: Danny Boyle

Synopsis: This diabolical thriller was the first film from director Danny Boyle, producer Andrew Macdonald, and screenwriter John Hodge (the smashing team behind Trainspotting). In SHALLOW GRAVE, three self-involved Edinburgh roommates—played by Kerry Fox (An Angel at My Table), Christopher Eccleston (Elizabeth), and Ewan McGregor (Beginners), in his first starring role—take in a brooding boarder. When he dies of an overdose, leaving a suitcase full of money, the trio embark on a series of very bad decisions, with extraordinarily grim consequences for all. Macabre but with a streak of offbeat humor, this stylistically influential tale of guilt and derangement is a full-throttle bit of Hitchcockian nastiness.
