Presented by The Script Factory in partnership with Curzon Cinemas & Optimum Releasing
Curzon Soho delighted that debut director Armando Iannucci will join us immediately after this preview screening for a conversation about expanding TV concepts to suit the big screen; making British comedy that travels; and finding comic potential in the corridors of Westminster and Washington.
Directed by master satirist Armando Iannucci and co-written by the team who brought you the BAFTA award-winning TV hit The Thick of It, Iannucci’s feature debut is another razor sharp political comedy whereby the US President and UK Prime Minister suddenly fancy a war – but it’ll be quick this time! Not everyone on both sides are in agreement however, and events become even more hysterical when the British Secretary of State (Hollander) accidentally backs military action on prime-time TV – and suddenly gains lots of friends in Washington! Often echoing the most extreme and cringing events of recent political history, In the Loop
