Jon S. Baird (Filth) directs Steve Coogan as Stan Laurel and John C. Reilly as Oliver Hardy, in this melancholic biopic about the comedy duo as they attempt to revive their careers with a rigorous theater tour of post-war Britain.

This affectionate look behind the scenes at the beloved pair of funnymen examines their triumphs and travails, how their partnership was in some ways like a marriage, how their past haunts them, and Oliver’s failing health. It’s a charming albeit modest tribute to two decent gentlemen who connected with audiences for decades but now know their current tour is probably their swan song. (97 min.)
