This diabolical thriller was the first film from director Danny Boyle, producer Andrew Macdonald, and screenwriter John Hodge (the smashing team behind "Trainspotting"). In "Shallow Grave", three self-involved Edinburgh roommates - played by Kerry Fox ("An Angel at My Table"), Christopher Eccleston ("Elizabeth"), and Ewan McGregor ("Beginners"), in his first starring role - take in a brooding boarder. When he dies of an overdose, leaving a suitcase full of money, the trio embark on a series of very bad decisions, with extraordinarily grim consequences for all. Macabre but with a streak of offbeat humor, this stylistically influential tale of guilt and derangement is a full-throttle bit of Hitchcockian nastiness.
