The Trip to Spain
First screened in August 2017
Director: Michael Winterbottom. Cast: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan, Margo Stilley, Rebecca Johnson, Marta Barrio, Timothy Leach, Kerry Shale, Justin Edwards, Kyle Soller. Screenplay: No doubt some story outline somewhere, but mostly the inspiration of the moment.

Twitter Capsule: Mick Jagger, John Hurt: two laughs. I know it's partly about solipsism and past-primeness, but maybe too much so.

VOR:   Finale suggests an attempt to admit the film's and its characters' narrowness and nostalgia, but that garish misstep proves the rule.
