Stan & Ollie

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 legendary 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 embark on a variety hall tour of Britain and Ireland. Despite the pressure 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.

"It is simply terrific-an understated but smartly told crowd-pleaser about the legendary comedy duo in their last act, with wonderful production value, a sharp and surprisingly poignant script and brilliant performances."
Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
 

The Favourite 

Early 18th century England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way. Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos.

Teddy Pendergrass: If You Don't Know Me

A once off chance to see Olivia Lichtenstein's tender documentary about the unforgettable voice behind "Don't Leave Me This Way", "Close the Door" and "If You Don't Know Me By Now", Teddy Pendergrass. Teddy was poised to be the biggest R&B artist of all time with five consecutive platinum albums. But his career was halted by a 1982 car accident that left him paralysed at age 31. This definitive biography, set to a soulful soundtrack, captures revealing interviews with his closest associates to trace his rise, fall and post-accident comeback at Live Aid.
After the film we're delighted to be joined for a post screening Q&A with director Olivia Lichtenstein.
