Stan & Ollie PG
From the archive
This film was last shown on 26 February 2019
It’s 1952 and comedy legends, Stan Laurel (Steve Coogan) and Ollie Hardy (John C. Reilly), are at a low-point. With no studio willing to pick up their film and their star fading significantly the two decide to commence on a UK wide tour in hopes of reigniting their career.
However, time has changed a lot between the two and the claustrophobic tour brings old issues to the surface, and with Ollie’s health failing tensions begin rise.
A heartfelt and charming love letter to two of the comedic greats.
