Timothy Spall headlines the fascinating-looking Stanley, A Man Of Variety.
The quite wonderful Timothy Spall is heading to our screens again at the end of this month with the film Stanley, A Man Of Variety.
It’s a film that Spall has co-written with Stephen Cookson – Cookson also directs – and a trailer has been released. On top of that, we’ve got a synopsis and release details. Best get down to work.
The trailer is here…
The official synopsis reads thus…
Stanley (Spall) finds himself in prison for a crime he believes he didn’t commit. Now a lonely, forgotten man approaching his fifteenth year in the old psychiatric facility, he maintains his role as a trustee by cleaning the grim prison interior, which earns him the privilege of watching and re-watching classic videos from his prized collection of memorabilia. When this privilege is withdrawn, Stanley becomes so distressed that he suffers a physical and mental seizure. Soon enough, his beloved heroes – Max Wall, George Formby, Max Miller, Margaret Rutherford, Alastair Sim and more – visit him in hallucinations (all played by Spall) showing their sinister, unsettling side and take him on a bizarre journey through the unbearable truth of his life and incarceration.
The movie is heading to DVD and digital download from March 29th, after a successful run at festivals.
