Biographical comedy-drama based on the later years of the lives of the comedy double act Laurel and Hardy. The world’s greatest comedy team face an uncertain future as their golden
era of Hollywood films remain long behind them. Diminished by age, the duo set out to reconnect with their adoring fans by touring variety halls in Britain in 1953. The shows become an instant hit, but Stan and Ollie can’t quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy’s failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.

“It’s a film made with an enormous amount of care and affection. And Coogan and O’Reilly don’t just perform. They resurrect.”

“”Stan & Ollie” has plenty to say about the things that bring us together, and the things that keep us together.”
