    Ewan McGregor's latest film is a dark and pessimistic tale set in 1950s Scotland. Playing a troubled and increasingly morality-free young man, McGregor has garnered praise for his performance as Joe, prompting claims of a career-best turn. Based on Alexander Trocchi's remarkable novel, Young Adam was acclaimed at Cannes and took the Michael Powell Award for Best New British Feature Film at this year's Edinburgh Festival. It boasts an array of staggeringly good performances from Tilda Swinton, Emily Mortimer and Peter Mullan and photography that is pure art. Oh, and it's a total bonkfest.

    It's really an understatement to say that Ewan gets his end away in Young Adam, in fact the actor gets naked and sweaty with almost every female character to so much as pass him on screen. "There's an awful lot of sex in it," said Swinton, arriving along with co-stars at last night's premiere for the film at the Warner West End cinema in Leicester Square. "People might be a little shocked but if they have real, straight-up, straight-down, mortal, sweaty, fleshy sex then they'll say 'yeah… so?'"

    The sex in Young Adam is all of those things and is, at times, more gruesome than erotic. "We didn't go out of our way to shock people," McGregor told Empire Online .We went out of our way to try and make it really truthful and certainly with the sex we made it quite explicit. It's not movie sex where everyone's glistening and everyone always comes together - 'cause in my experience that's not always the case. It's not shocking but it's kind of familiar.

    "It's a very important part of the film. Like the music in Moulin Rouge tells the story, the sex in this tells a story. It's not just there for the sake of it." Indeed it is not and if you're after cheap thrills then the gritty drama of Young Adam is probably not the place to go. Unless, that is, seeing Ewan in all his naked glory is enough to get your rocks off, something the actor is rather used to. "Full frontal, great," he said. "Bring it on!"
