Two-time Academy Award nominee Steve Coogan (Best Motion Picture of the Year and Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay, Philomena, 2014) and John C. Reilly, who received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance, star as the slapstick comedy legends Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy in Stan and Ollie arriving on digital, Blu-Ray & DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film follows the pair through a farewell tour across the U.K. as they attempt to re-connect with both their fans and each other. Stan and Ollie is directed by Jon S. Baird (Filth) and also stars Nina Arianda (Florence Foster Jenkins) and Shirley Henderson (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets).
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. 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.
