Storyline

Vicious tells the story of partners Freddie and Stuart, who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly fifty years. Constantly picking each other apart and holding on to petty slights for decades, Freddie and Stuart are always at each other s throats, cracking snide remarks aimed at the other's age, appearance, and flaws. However, underneath their vicious, co-dependent fighting, they have a deep love for one another. Freddie and Stuart are often joined by feisty best friend Violet and Ash, their young, upstairs neighbor.

A George and Martha for the new millenium
13 October 2018 | by liufilms-ylSee all my reviews

What a delight to see Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi having a wonderful time because their pleasure is our pleasure. A gay Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf 48 years together in constant battle with each other but unable and unwilling to have it any other way. Love is all there is and when love has been constant between two people nobody can understand why they are together. They know. I love them, together. They are surrounded by spectacular actors and actresses playing hysterically funny characters without lowering the standards that they themselves represent. A special valentine to Frances de la Tour and Marcia Warren.
