Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy is a gritty, intense drama that follows the journey of a young man, Lloyd Buist (Adam Sinclair), as he navigates his way through the world of club drugs and romance. Set in the 1990s, the film opens with Lloyd, a DJ and aspiring writer, attending a party where he meets the beautiful Heather Thompson (Kristin Kreuk). The two quickly hit it off, and Lloyd begins to fall for her.

Despite his feelings for Heather, Lloyd remains deeply involved in the club scene and regularly takes ecstasy and other drugs. As the film progresses, he struggles to reconcile his love for Heather with his addiction and the dangerous lifestyle that ensues.

Complicating matters further are the relationships Lloyd has with his best friend, Woody (Billy Boyd), and with his drug dealer, Solo (Carlo Rota). Woody is a fellow DJ and drug user, while Solo is a shady figure who operates on the fringes of the drug world.

As Lloyd spirals further out of control, he becomes increasingly isolated and paranoid. He begins to suspect that Solo and other shady characters are watching him and plotting against him.

The tension builds as Lloyd's relationships with Heather, Woody, and Solo all become more complex and fraught. As he struggles to keep his head above water, he becomes embroiled in a plot involving stolen drugs, gangsters, and violence.

Throughout the film, the themes of addiction, love, and identity are explored with raw honesty and intensity. The soundtrack, featuring music from the likes of Underworld and The Chemical Brothers, adds to the film's electric atmosphere.

One of the film's strengths is the strong performances from the cast, with Adam Sinclair delivering a powerful portrayal of a man struggling with addiction and identity. Kristin Kreuk is also impressive as the conflicted Heather, while Billy Boyd is a standout as the troubled Woody.

Overall, Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy is a gripping, emotional journey that offers a stark and unflinching look at the world of club drugs and the toll they can take on those who indulge in them.

Irvine Welsh's Ecstasy is a 2012 romance movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 39 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0.
