STAN & OLLIE (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì 

Stan & Ollie—a rare Wow! biopic—features John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan in this terrific movie about the comedy duo,  Laurel and Hardy. Despite being panned by many major critics, the movie completely wins in its ability to catch the emotion of aging entertainers as health issues and/or other factors hinder ability to entertain. The film finishes sweetly and provokes good discussion after viewing.
