Cinematique Presents "The Trip to Italy"

In this witty follow-up to the 2010 film The Trip, director Michael Winterbottom reunites comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon for a new culinary road trip. In this version, our heroes retrace the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy, all while indulging in sparkling banter and various impersonation-offs. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay of Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, cooking up a biting portrait of modern day masculinity. (Unrated, 1 hr 48 min)
