But it doesn’t take long for the dream to fade. Litterbugs, noisy teenagers and pre-booked caravan sites, not to mention Tina’s meddling mother, soon conspire to shatter Chris’s dreams and send him, and anyone who rubs him up the wrong way, over a very jagged edge…
The third film from award-winning director Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace, Kill List), Sightseers is written by its stars, Alice Lowe and Steve Oram with additional material by Amy Jump.
After Kill List (which was my favourite film from last year), and Down Terrace, I can't wait to see what Wheatley does next. It's also just been picked up by IFC for North American distribution - I'm hoping we'll get release dates for the US and UK soon.
