For all you Laurel and Hardy fans, the release of affectionate biopic Stan & Ollie must feel like Christmas has come around again. And even if you're a newcomer, the film acts as a heartwarming and insightful introduction to the legendary comedy duo.
Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly have been praised for their accurate portrayals of Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, the seemingly mismatched pair who transformed physical comedy into an art form during the early days of Hollywood. However the movie also has a melancholy streak, exploring the final years they spent together touring dilapidated British seaside resorts.
With Coogan BAFTA nominated and Reilly Golden Globe nominated, it's highly likely the movie will pick up Oscars attention. With the movie on release from Friday 11th January, go behind the scenes in the following video and discover how the production channelled the legacy of Laurel and Hardy for a new audience.
