Stan and Ollie

Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as legendary movie icons Laurel & Hardy, STAN & OLLIE is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour.

In 1953, several years after their last film and with their immense celebrity on the wane, comedy double act Stan Laurel and Ollie Hardy embark on a tour of British seaside towns and music halls. They initially 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 act and the tour builds towards a big London finale. But as the attention grows, so too do old resentments, coming to a head when they are joined in Britain by their wives Lucille and Ida.
