The story of an iconic comedy double act will amuse audiences at a Clevedon cinema, and the North Somerset Times is offering one lucky reader the chance to see it for free.
Stan & Ollie retells the story of legendary comic duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, who face an uncertain future as their golden era of Hollywood films remains long behind them.
Laurel – an Englishman – and Hardy, an American, were a huge Hollywood hit in the 1930s and 1940s, earning superstar status for their rib-tickling slapstick shows.
The pair starred in more than 100 films together, and they are widely regarded as one of the best double acts ever seen.
But this biopic tells the story of their struggles to create another film.
A top-quality cast has been assembled for the comedy-drama, with Steve Coogan and John C Reilly playing Laurel and Hardy, respectively.
Coogan is best known for his performances as bumbling broadcaster and wannabe celebrity Alan Partridge, which remains immensely popular more than two decades after the character debuted.
Reilly has enjoyed a long career on the big screen and is most famous for his performances in Magnolia, Step Brothers, Chicago and Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.
Coogan and Reilly working in tandem promises to deliver plenty of laughs but also an accurate portrayal of slapstick masters Laurel and Hardy.
The Times has teamed up with the Curzon Cinema in Clevedon to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see the film.
This competition will close at 10am on Monday.
