“No Man’s Land”
The Stage to Screen series brings a hilarious and irreverent production. Close friends Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart share the stage once more in this Harold Pinter film, broadcast live from Wyndham’s Theatre, London. The perfect premise for showcasing the wit and humor of two theatrical veterans casts the two characters with plenty of imbibing and storytelling on a summer’s evening. Two aging writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst’s stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men. Clever banter, verbal sparring, and comedic brilliance ensue as McKellen and Stewart’s delightful exchange underscores the value of holding onto life-long friendship, cherishing the powerful memories that such companionship yields.
