A balm for the January blues. LSFF’s traditional opener of laughing matter returns and this year doesn’t disappoint for star power with Steve Oram (Sightseers), Harry Enfield and Isy Suttie (Peep Show) taking their turns on the big (short) screen. There’s Paul McCartney conspiracy theories to get to the bottom of, jilted bridegrooms, ill-timed apparitions of chain-smoking mums and er, faces growing out of necks. 93 minutes.
