While we can’t go overseas at the moment and visit breathtaking Greece, maybe some couch travel will do the trick.
British actors Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite for a final odyssey—this one based loosely on Homer’s Odyssey- in ‘The Trip to Greece’.
This new instalment follows two previous sequels, 2014’s ‘The Trip to Italy’ and 2017’s ‘The Trip to Spain’.
“When Odysseus left Troy it took him 10 years to get back to his home in Ithaca. Steve and Rob have only six days on their own personal odyssey in The Trip to Greece,” IFC Films said in a synopsis. “On the way, they argue about tragedy and comedy, astronomy and biology, myth, history, democracy and the meaning of life! Featuring locations such as: Temple of Apollo at Delphi, the Ancient Agora of Athens, the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, the unique island of Hydra, the Caves of Diros, Nestor’s Palace, Niokastro Fortress in Pylos and Ancient Stagira, as well as a lot of shooting in restaurants and hotels in Athens, Hydra, Lesvos, Chalkidiki, Pelion, Kavala and at the Peloponnese.”
IFC Films has set a May 22 digital and on demand release for the Steve Coogan-Rob Brydon comedy.
