The Trip to Italy

Friday, April 30, 2021, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(Michael Winterbottom, UK 2014, 108 min., DCP)

Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan are back, visiting sites associated with Byron and Shelley in Italy. This time, Brydon has been engaged to write a follow-up article and invites Coogan along for the excursion. Coogan gets news about his American television show while Brydon tries to audition for a new Michael Mann film over the internet. Middle age is creeping in and Brydon has become more restless while Coogan has become more comfortable with his life. In between stunning vistas and tasting menus, the two continue their contentious relationship and trade impressions of Michael Caine, Al Pacino, and Hugh Grant, which seems to have its own romantic power.
