Ten years after its release, Withnail and I is a certified cult film, with the debauched and despairing character of Withnail still a beacon of inspiration to disaffected youth. Hollywood beckoned the film's star, Richard E. Grant, and he went. With Nails is Grant's brilliantly idiosyncratic, witty, and revealing account of the film business and life among its stars. From visiting sex shops in Paris with Elizabeth Hurley and Hugh Grant to answering the Spice Girls' probing questions about his sex life during downtime on the set of Spice World to working with Hollywood's hottest directors - Robert Altman in The Player and Pret a Porter, Francis Ford Coppola in Bram Stoker's Dracula and Martin Scorsese in The Age of Innocence - Richard E. Grant has documented what it's like to Become a Film Star with a frank and funny intelligence.
