Brokeback Trainspotting

Danny Boyle, the film director, is 53 today. And what a 53 years. He did the film about the suitcase of money that drove everyone bonkers, then he did the one about the Edinburgh Festival, where everyone took loads of heroin. Plus, of course, no one will ever forget the movie about the kid from Skins outwitting Chris Tarrant to win a million quid. Great film. Great film. Hence, we thought we’d get him a gift, so we all stood on a river bank shouting present ideas up to God, then waited for weather related signals to decide what we should buy him, and the Lord decreed that it should be a toss up between five loaves and two fishes, or a funny gay version of his second most famous film. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Danny Boyle!
