Shallow Grave

Shallow Grave

Danny Boyle’s BAFTA award-winning directorial debut tells the tale of three flatmates, one corpse and a suitcase full of money. David (Christopher Eccleston), Alex (Ewan McGregor) and Juliet (Kerry Fox) are looking for someone to share their trendy Edinburgh flat, and Hugo (Keith Allen) seems the ideal candidate. But shortly after he moves in, they find him dead in bed beside a large suitcase full of cash. Should they inform the police or dispose of the body and keep the loot? They choose the latter, but there are other parties after the money and they have little to do with the forces of law and order… So begins a dark and sometimes hilarious journey through death, dismemberment and dementia.
