“The lot of popular American comedies over the last half-decade or so is comprised largely of—pardon the awful word—Bromances. But perhaps the most sensitive comedic portrayal of heterosexual male romance is an English cult classic celebrating its 25th anniversary. [Withnail and I] captures the bittersweet quality of male buddyhood wherein the rhythm of life is almost never the same and one man, inevitably and heartbreakingly, will always leave the other behind… The acting is terrific, and Richard E. Grant, a teetotaler, gives a remarkably well-observed performance as the alcoholic Withnail, embodying grandiosity (Do you have any idea who I intend to be?) that is, of course, all show.”
Jeff Rhoda, The Atlantic
