Seniors Program North – Audio Descriptive Movie: Stan & Ollie
This movie will be shown with audio description which uses narration in an attempt to describe visual content.
Laurel & Hardy, one of the world’s great comedy teams, set out on a variety hall tour of Britain in 1953. Diminished by age & with their golden era as the kings of Hollywood comedy now behind them, they face an uncertain future. As the charm & beauty of their performances shines through, they re-connect with their adoring fans. The tour becomes a hit, but Stan & Ollie can’t quite shake the specter of Laurel & Hardy’s past; the long-buried ghosts, coupled with Oliver’s failing health, start to threaten their precious partnership. A portrait of the most tender & poignant of creative marriages, they are aware that they may be approaching their swan song, trying to rediscover just how much they mean to each other.
Rated PG. Popcorn will be served.
