Awards and Festivals

In the 50’s, Lanny Morris (Kevin Bacon) and Vince Collins (Academy Award™ winner Colin Firth) are the most beloved entertainers in America. A classic duo — Lanny is the manic comedian, while Vince is his cool and collected straight man—the (“boys”) know how to make audiences roar with laughter at their jokes, or shed tears at one of their famous telethons. They are at the top of their game, wealthy, powerful, and enormously popular, when something terrible happens to threaten their success: inexplicably, a dead beauty turns up in their hotel suite.
