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 (Steve Coogan) and Ollie (John C. Reilly) can't quite shake the past as long-buried tension and Hardy's failing health start to threaten their precious partnership.
This heart-warming story was written by Jeff Pope (PHILOMENA) and directed by Jon S. Baird (FILTH).
