 “The Trip to Italy”
Winter Film Series
Sunday, March 8  @  3:00 p.m.
Odd couple (comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon) eat six meals in six different locations from Naples to Capri.

Hilarious and insightful, “The Trip to Italy” melds the crackling chemistry between Coogan and Brydon to create a brilliantly comic rumination on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. Not rated. 108 minutes.
