Kevin Jackson recounts that experience in addition to giving a full account of the film's production. But chiefly he analyses the mood and magic of the film, its aesthetics and sensibility, seeking to show, without ever detracting from the film's comic brilliance, just how much more there is to Withnail & I than drunkenness and swearing. 'It is an outstandingly touching yet witheringly unsentimental drama of male friendship,' Jackson writes, 'a bleak up-ending of the English pastoral dream, a piece of ferocious verbal inventiveness' - and, without question, one of the greatest of all British films.
This volume contains the screenplay of 'Withnail and I', written by Bruce Robinson who was nominated for an Academy Award for his screenplay of 'The Killing Fields'. Robinson also directed the film.

Paul Dave rewrites the relationship of film and Englishnes, exploring the full range of film production that includes the gangster thriller Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; the period cinema of Elizabeth; cult classics like Performance and Trainspotting; the mainstream romantic comedy of Notting Hill and Bridget Jones; the social realism of Billy Elliot and The Full Monty; the multicultural comedy of Bend It Like Beckham; and experimental films such as London Orbital and Robinson in Space.
In the past two decades, Othello has tried out for the basketball team, Macbeth has taken over a fast food joint and King Lear has moved to an Iowa farm—Shakespeare is everywhere in popular culture. This collection of essays addresses the use of Shakespearean narratives, themes, imagery and characterizations in non-Shakespearian cinema. The essays explore how Shakespeare and his work are manipulated within the popular media and explore topics such as racism, jealousy, misogyny and nationality. The submissions concentrate on film and television programs that are adaptations of Shakespearean plays, including My Own Private Idaho, CSI-Miami, A Thousand Acres, Prospero’s Books, O, 10 Things I Hate About You, Withnail and I, Get Over It, and The West Wing. Each chapter includes notes and a list of works cited. A full bibliography completes the work; it is divided into bibliographies and filmographies, general studies and essays, derivatives based on a single play, derivatives based on several, and derivatives based on Shakespeare as a character.
