“HIS latest movie could have been a shot in the arm for our film industry – but Billy Boyd is frustrated that new “Scottish” flick Ecstasy is full of Canadians.
The Lord of The Rings star, from Cranhill, Glasgow, has spoken out about the “nightmare” scenario faced by Canadian film-maker Rob Heydon when he tried to secure funding from creative bodies in Scotland for the film adapted from an Irvine Welsh story.
Searching for ecstasy – Irvine Welsh’s novel gets the big screen treatment
“It looks at what ecstasy is – as a drug and as a word,” Boyd (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy) explains. “When people are searching for ecstasy, what is it they’re looking for? Woodsy is looking for some spiritual or religious meaning and sees ecstasy as a means of talking to god; Ally is trying to find it through organic food; and Lloyd’s looking for love.”
“Irvine Welsh looks at why people take that drug,” Boyd reasons. “In Leith [a working-class area of Edinburgh] there
is no employment, people have no aspiration and so they are looking for a way out. It’s heroin in Trainspotting and
it’s ecstasy here.
