Movie: Stan and Ollie

Laurel & Hardy, one of the world's great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age and with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm and beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can't quite shake the specter of Laurel and Hardy's past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver's failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership.
        
Starring: Steve Coogan, John C. Reilly, Nina Arianda
Release Year: 2019
Rating: PG (for some language, and for smoking)
Running Time: 97 Minutes
