In coming-of-age movie Diner, five buddies hang out in their favourite eaterie, while wrestling with the problems of growing up.

Actor Kevin Bacon was sick on the day of his audition to play Fenwick. But, having decided  that his character would probably be half-drunk during the entire movie, he went ahead with the screen test and got the part.

Diner is showing tonight – Tuesday 29th November – on BBC4 at 10pm
