March 13th - March 15th
Steve Coogan gleams, teeth and all, in his role as Sir Richard ‘Greedy’ McCreadie, the king of the high street.
Many of the seven deadly sins show up in this fast-paced mockumentary from prolific Winterbottom (The Trip). Set back by fraud investigations, McCreadie is determined to prove he is still top of the heap by throwing the ultimate celeb-filled, Roman-themed 60th birthday party on a Greek island, complete with fake amphitheatre, gladiators and real lions. What could go wrong? Full of caricatures and sharp, scatter-gun oneliners, Coogan and a terrific ensemble cast deliver an angry, hilariously funny slap in the face for capitalist targets, general and specific.
