Stan & Ollie

    Stan & Ollie Synopsis

    1953, several years after their last film and with their immense celebrity on the wane, Stan ‘Laurel’ (Steve Coogan) and Ollie ‘Hardy’ (john C. Reilly) embark on a gig tour of British seaside towns and music halls. Surprised by the modesty of the bookings and cramped little guesthouses, the tour starts off subdued.

    They struggle for audiences and their booking agent seems disinterested. But a series of TV guest spots and celebrity appearances soon rekindle the country’s interest in their genius and the buzz grows as they head towards a big London finale.

    As the attention builds, so too do old resentments, coming to a head as they’re joined by ‘the wives’, Lucille and Ida (Shirley Henderson and Nina Arianda, a hilarious double act in their own right).
