The ageing Laurel and Hardy reunite for a UK theatre tour, hopeful that this will restart their movie careers. Straightforward though handsome and respectful biopic of the black-and-white comedy legends, anchored by two exceptional lead performances and genuine affection for its subjects. Recommended.
Mark Renton returns to Edinburgh, twenty years on. Confident sequel/reprise of the 1996 original. Plenty to enjoy and admire, even if there’s inevitably a spark of freshness missing.
