Stan & Ollie
John C Reilly and Steve Coogan play the loveable comedy duo in this entertaining new biopic.
Dir Jon S Baird
With John C Reilly, Steve Coogan, Nina Arianda, Shirley Henderson
An Entertainment One release
It’s 1953 and Hollywood has fallen out of love with Laurel and Hardy, the once golden duo of international comedy. In the hope of re-igniting their career, the pair embark on a tour of the UK’s seaside towns and music halls, but audiences are sparse and impresario Bernard Delfont is already looking for ways to break their contract. With hilarious recreations of Way Out West on film and County Hospital on stage, Coogan and Reilly excel as the beloved entertainers and give a heart-warming depiction of a lifelong friendship under pressure.
