“Stan & Ollie has plenty to say about the things that bring us together, and the things that keep us together.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News
“A delightful romp with the duo considered by some to be the best comedy team of the 20th century.” – Harvey S. Karten, Big Apple Reviews
“Stan & Ollie is a joyous ode to an iconic duo’s final few years that portrays its subjects with the love and attention its audience craves.” – Gus Edgar, Film Inquiry
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 spectre of Laurel and Hardy’s past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of the most tender and poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.
