Comedy is no laughing matter for Oscar winners Sally Field and Tom Hanks, who take centre stage in the smash hit PUNCHLINE.

Field (from Forrest Gump, Mrs Doubtfire) stars as Lilah Krytsick, a New Jersey housewife and mother of three who desperately wants to make it big as a comedian.

Hanks (from Castaway, Saving Private Ryan) plays Steven Gold, a self-centred type who's been stealing the spotlight at the New York comedy club with his irrepressible, natural comedic talent. Drawn to one another, Steven helps the stumbling Lilah turn her routine from flat to funny, while Lilah helps Steven keep his anguished life together.

With critically-acclaimed performances by Hanks and Field, PUNCHLINE is a fascinating drama about the often harrowing world of comedy.
