Afternoon Film: Stan and Ollie (PG)

May 21 @ 14:00pm - 15:40pm

£3

For Stan and Ollie

Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, two brilliant physical comedians, give delightful performances nailing the duo’s body language, mannerisms and routines.

“This gentle, sweet story of two of cinema’s most legendary comics is a small delight, a warm hug of a movie with superb, spot-on performances, some big laughs, and genuinely touching moments.” Common Sense Media

1953 with their immense fame on the wane, Stan ‘Laurel’ and Ollie ‘Hardy’ embark on a gruelling farewell tour of British seaside towns. The tour starts badly; modest music halls, cramped little guesthouses, they struggle for audiences. But a series of TV guest spots rekindle the country’s interest and the buzz grows as they head towards a big London finale. But old resentments surface, particularly once ‘the wives’, Lucille and Ida, (a hilarious double act in their own right) join them. A charming, poignant, insightful study of lifelong male friendship this is a fitting tribute to the greatest pair of comedians of all time.
