ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA

DIRECTOR: Declan Lowney - GREAT BRITAIN

“Those who have hungered for the big-screen debut of Steve Coogan’s singular comic creation need wait no longer: Alpha Papa has landed, and it is uproariously funny. Since 1994, various BBC series have chronicled the hilarious downward trajectory of the vain and obliviously tactless Alan Partridge, from failed television talk-show host to obnoxious regional radio broadcaster, mercilessly skewering English mediocrity and media ineptitude along the way. When the staff of Radio Norwich is seized at gunpoint by downsized DJ Pat, a siege scenario is set in motion, and Alan is obliged to risk his life by serving as the intermediary. As events escalate, our self-aggrandizing hero is not entirely unhappy to find himself at the center of a media circus: can he save the day and, more importantly, resuscitate his career?”—Film Society of Lincoln Center. (90 mins.)
