Food culture: 'The Trip' now playing

June 21, 2011 |  6:00 am

 

When asked by the Observer to tour the English countryside's finest restaurants, actor Steve Coogan brings along friend and "Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story" co-star Rob Brydon. Traveling through the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales with 10 restaurants on their itinerary, the comic duo constantly try to one-up each other with celebrity impersonations of Sean Connery, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman and Anthony Hopkins, to name a few. Director Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised project makes for a witty film about food, friendship and the nature of comedy. Now playing at Landmark and Laemmle theater locations.
