Stanley a Man of Variety

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Stanley finds himself in prison for a crime that he believes that he didn’t commit. After many years in solitary confinement he begins to talk to his comedy heroes from the past as each one tries to help him remember what he has done. We follow Stanley through his journey of hallucinations as he faces up to his unusual upbringing and his parents’ bizarre religious beliefs.
Stanley becomes desperate to learn the truth about what happened to his daughter and what lead to having this ordinary life he has already dreamed of.
Award-winning actor Timothy Spall plays Stanley and all the characters in his hallucinations; from the flamboyant Noel Coward to the grotesque Max Wall to the ukulele king George Formby, to Egor in a Transylvanian castle. http://www.ckfilmsltd.co.uk
