This sweet, sad film is about a little-known final chapter in the lives of comedy legends Stan Laurel (Steve Coogan)and Oliver Hardy (John C Reilly). In 1952, at a low point professionally, out of fashion in the United States, their relationship under stress and needing money, they took on a British tour, sometimes to painfully sparse audiences. Jon S Baird’s feature appears fictionally to conflate the tour with the wintry mood of later UK tours when Stan and Ollie’s health and career worries had escalated further. It has a persuasive feel for this twilight of the comedy gods.
