Trainspotting might have been 15 years ago but we can still remember the shock vibrations that the film caused when it was released. Plus, we still have the poster rolled up somewhere under the bed.

Break away star of that film, Ewan McGregor, was with us last night at the Opening Night of the 54th San Francisco International Film Festival where his new film, Beginners was screened. We were very pleased the Scot made time for a chat with us, and joined the antics with Grolsch at the after-party, especially as he didn't even make the screening of the movie itself, dashing in instead from a delayed flight from France to the post-film Q&A.

We also spoke to the director of Beginners, Mike Mills. We loved his 2005 film Thumbsucker and asked him why he always makes films about his own life.

Afterwards it was back to the Opening Night party at San Francisco's awesome TERRA Gallery. If you were there, let us know.
