Win a copy of Stanley A Man Of Variety on DVD
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 When this privilege is withdrawn, Stanley becomes so distressed that he suffers a physical and mental seizure.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.
Directed by Stephen Cookson who co-wrote the film with Spall, Stanley, A Man of Variety won an impressive 16 awards at film festivals worldwide and stands as one of the most original, unmissable British films of recent times.
