The stars of ‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’ get candid about the British comedy film

Based on a popular 90's television show, Absolutely Fabulous centres around Edina Monsoon, a heavy-drinking PR agent, and Patsy Stone, a promiscuous magazine editor. Edina, played by Jennifer Saunders and Patsy, played by Joanna Lumley are best friends and each other's enablers.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie follows the two as they get into lots of mischiefs and debacles around London. The duo is desperately trying to salvage Edina's PR agency, which is quickly running out of money and reputation. They created a media storm at a high profile event when Edina accidentally bumps the Kate Moss off the balcony. To ride out the PR fiasco, the ladies escape to the French Riviera. What ensues is a hilarious cocktail of chaos.

The movie also sees special appearance by Rebel Wilson, Cara Delevingne, Lily Cole, Joan Collins and Graham Norton among others.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is the biggest British film of the year as it rakes in over £4.02million so far since its opening on 1 July.

Buro 24/7 journalist, Will King recently had the privilege to interview the actresses Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley as well as Mandie Fletcher, the director.
