Simon (Jonny Lee Miller) and Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) in star in T2: Trainspotting.

"T2 Trainspotting" was officially released last week and will start showing soon in Phoenix.

The movie shows Mark Renton and his buddies, 20 years after the original movie.

"Trainspotting" was unflinching in its portrayal of drug use. That got us wondering how things have changed since the film came out.

To help answer that is Michael Young, president of the New York Film Academy.
