Starring Adam Sinclair, of British television and Van Wilder 2, Kristin Kreuk of Smallville, Billy Boyd of Lord of the Rings, and Irvine Welsh in a cameo, Ecstasy is cult-classic ready. Director Rob Heydon draws his plot from Welsh's novella The Undefeated: An Acid House Romance and uses his expertise in music videos and documentaries to re-create the club scene, including a pulsing soundtrack from Coldplay, Primal Scream, and Tiesto. Ecstasy has opened in Canada, Germany, and the UK.
