Who doesn’t love going to the movies!! And one of the great movies you can check out is this one.
Laurel and Hardy, the world’s favorite comedy double act, set out on a variety hall tour in Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As they set out, crisscrossing the country, attendances are disappointingly low.
But they’ve always been able to make each other laugh as the charm and beauty of their performances shines through their audiences laugh too, and they re-connect with legions of adoring fans, old and new.
The tour becomes a hit, but Laurel and Hardy can’t quite shake the spectre of Stan and Ollie’s past, and long buried ghosts, couple with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership.
A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages begins to unfold as the duo, aware they they may be approaching their swan song, try to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.
Stan and Ollie opens in theatre in select cities on January 18th but you can be one of the first to see it by winning your passes to the advance screening on Wednesday January 16th at Cineplex Ottawa on Carling.
