Starring Paul McGann and Richard E. Grant as the iconic double-act of the title, Bruce Robinson’s brilliant semi-autobiographical black comedy famously tells the story of two unemployed actors living in London at the tail-end of the Sixties. Now boasting a huge cult following, Robinson’s timeless classic is enjoying a new lease of life in its 30th year with anniversary screenings being viewed from a new perspective as Britain takes a long hard look at itself in the mirror.
