With Nails: The Film Diaries of Richard E. Grant

Richard E. Grant

With Nails is Richard E. Grant's brilliantly idiosyncratic, witty, and revealing account of the movie enterprise and existence between its stars. 

First comes Grant's first gigantic holiday, the starring position in Bruce Robinson's Withnail and I, the cult movie that set Grant's occupation on a direction certain for stardom―"I had no concept that, nearly with no exception, each movie provided considering could be the results of enjoying an alcoholic-out-of-work actor." Like Dante's Virgil he publications the reader during the hell of the making of Hudson Hawk. He is familiar with he is an insider while Carrie Fisher reminds him, "You're not a vacationer, you’re one of many attractions." This heady mix of consuming spaghetti with the Coppolas, window-shopping with Sharon Stone, and dealing with and studying from the simplest actors and administrators in Tinseltown can be impossible to resist to someone who loves videos or aspires to be a Hollywood participant.
