Film Screening:


The Trip

(Michael Winterbottom, 2010, 107 min, UK, in English, Color, DVD)

Playing loose versions of themselves, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom for an acerbically witty, largely improvised ride through the English countryside. Tapped by The Observer to review fine restaurants throughout the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, Steve finds himself without a traveling companion after his girlfriend decides not to go at the last minute. After being turned down by everyone else he knows, Steve extends an invitation to Rob, and together the pair attempt to navigate the winding back roads of rural England, impersonating popular celebrities such as Michael Caine, Woody Allen and Liam Neeson (among many others) and bickering along the way.

"Great fun to watch, the countryside is bucolic, the food mouthwatering."
-- Los Angeles Times

"One of the year's most beautiful films, thanks to cinematographer Ben Smithard's stunning landscape shots." -- John Belfuss
