STAN AND OLLIE

With their glory days as Hollywood’s premier comedy team long behind them, Stan Laurel (Steve Coogan) and Oliver Hardy (John C. Reilly) begin a grueling farewell tour of England and Ireland, reminding audiences – and themselves – of the magic of their partnership. A touching and sweet tribute to the two comedians who remained old friends through the good and bad times of their careers. Brilliantly acted by Coogan and Reilly, the film strikes just the right balance between comedy and effective drama. (2019), PG-13, 98 minutes.

But when a long-awaited rescue effort fails, he faces a life-or-death decision: remain in the relative safety of his camp and hope to be found, or embark on an arduous trek that may be the only hope for him and a critically injured stranger. A critically acclaimed film festival favorite, this gripping and suspenseful movie features a stellar performance by Mikkelson. (2019), PG-13, 98 minutes.
