Stan and Ollie (PG)
Cast. Steve Coogan, John C. Reilly, Nina Arianda, Shirley Henderson.
In 1953, several years after their last film and with their celebrity on the wane, Stan and Ollie embark on a tour of British seaside towns and music halls. Surprised by the modesty of the bookings and cramped guesthouses, they struggle for audiences. But a series of TV guest spots and celebrity appearances soon rekindle interest in their genius and as the attention builds, so too do old resentments. Coogan and Reilly are a revelation; they nail the body language, mannerisms and routines the duo would have known in their sleep after decades performing together. A poignant study of lifelong male friendship and a fitting tribute to two of cinema’s comedy giants.
