TRIP TO SPAIN

FEATURE NARRATIVE 110 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE TRIP TO SPAIN
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite with director Michael Winterbottom for another chapter in their hilarious road trip series. This time taking their wit and appetites on a tour through picturesque Spain’s finest fine dining, Coogan and Brydon trade celebrity impressions and witty banter over paella and gazpacho, their comic observations on fame and friendship as dry as the finest Spanish wine. Older and maybe wiser, the pair's conversation roams over many topics, but always seems to come back to fame, family, and getting older. Brydon is now a father, while Coogan is basking in the critical response to a lauded film performance (which he is happy to remind Brydon of at every opportunity), even as his agent seems to be losing interest in his career. The Trip to Spain is a delightful road trip comedy that feels like a vacation with old friends.
