Withnail and I is a British film made in 1986 by Handmade Films. Written and directed by Bruce Robinson, it is based on his life in London in the late 1960's. Withnail was Richard E. Grant's first film role and launched him into a successful career. The film featured performances by Richard Griffiths as Withnail's Uncle Monty, Paul McGann as "I" and Ralph Brown as Danny the drug dealer. The film has tragic and comic elements (particularly farce), and is notable for its period music and many quotable lines.
