Based in London, we usually attend Sunday afternoon screenings of acclaimed art house films from around the world - both new releases and repertory screenings - and follow this up with lively discussions on what we've seen. We have been going for more than eight years now.
UK-Canada-USA (97 mins)
This film has been well received. Both Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly have received a number of nominations, including BAFTAs:
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.
