I think I liked Kill List director Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers just a bit more than Mr. Disgusting did (review here), but it’s something I admire rather than love. I just don’t see myself wanting to spend time with the characters again. They’re well written and played mind you, they’re just unpleasant. I’d still recommend the film for at least one viewing though, and I really dig this new poster – they almost had me again!
In the comedy, “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 accompanies 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…”
IFC Films releases Sightseers on May 10th.
