It was announced the other day that Kill List director Ben Wheatley has just begun shooting Sightseers in Derbyshire, Yorkshire and the Lake District.
Actors Alice Lowe and Steve Oram wrote the script about a couple on a countryside caravan trip that goes wrong. This morning an official website was launched, which gives us an official plot crunch:
“Chris (Steve Oram) wants to show Tina (Alice Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way – on a journey through the British Isles in his beloved Abbey Oxford Caravan. Tina’s led a sheltered life and there are things that Chris needs her to see – the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum and the rolling countryside that separates these wonders in his life. 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…” Basically, everyone’s an asshole, and Chris loses it. Sweet.
