The true story of Hollywood’s greatest comedy double act, Laurel and Hardy, is brought to the big screen for the first time. Starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly as the inimitable movie icons, STAN & OLLIE is the heart-warming story of what would become the pair’s triumphant farewell tour.

With their golden era long behind them, the pair embarks on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressures of a hectic schedule, and with the support of their wives Lucille (Shirley Henderson) and Ida (Nina Arianda) – a formidable double act in their own right - the pair’s love of performing, as well as for each other, endures as they secure their place in the hearts of their adoring public.

Written by Oscar-nominee Jeff Pope (Philomena), STAN & OLLIE is a truly funny and touching story about a life-long friendship that just happens to be between two of the most iconic comedic characters in Hollywood’s history.

GOLDEN GLOBES ACHIEVEMENTS: NOMINATED for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy for John C. Reilly

It's a story about the serious side of comedians that never indulges in sad-clown sentimentality. And it intelligently explores the limitations of working partnerships in a way that neither canonizes nor excoriates its famous subjects.
TheWrap
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.
