Steve Coogan ('Stan & Ollie') stars in Michael Winterbottom's ('The Trip', '9 Songs') BAFTA-nominated comedy about an attempt to film Laurence Sterne's "unfilmable" 18th century novel 'The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy'.
Crossing the line between the world of the film and the life of the actors trying to make it, Steve Coogan plays both himself and Tristram Shandy, while Rob Brydon plays himself and Toby.
The story begins with Tristram Shandy narrating his life story as he sees it. Crammed with literary jokes and dark humour, Shandy's warped childhood tales are constantly interrupted by his family and household, inadvertently revealing far more about himself than any conventional autobiography.
