Cinematique presents…. ‘The Trip’


In anticipation of the Cucalorus Film Festival’s UK Spotlight Program (November 10 – 13, more details at, Cinematique and Cucalorus present an EXTENDED RUN of The Trip

Playing loose versions of themselves, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom for an acerbically witty, largely improvised ride through the English countryside. Tapped by The Observer to review fine restaurants throughout the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, Steve finds himself without a traveling companion after being turned down by everyone else he knows. Steve extends an invitation to Rob, and together the pair attempt to navigate the winding back roads of rural England, impersonating popular celebrities such as Michael Caine, Woody Allen and Liam Neeson (among many others) and bickering along the way. “The film is a wickedly funny joy ride that offers keen, unflatteringly honest insights on fame, midlife crises and the rivalrous nature of male friendship.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune.
