In this modern-day The Prince and the Pauper, a couple of aged siblings with a huge commodities portfolio enter a wager where they swap the lives of their well-educated MD with a street hustler in order to see what this reversal of fortune brings. This award-winning comedy was the first pairing of Landis and Murphy, and it’s as funny as it is festive.


The screening on Thu 13 Dec will be introduced by actors Jim Howick and Ben Willbond.
