Sightseers

Director: Ben Wheatley

Starring: Alice Lowe, Steve Oram, Eileen Davies

A black comedy involving a bumbling Birmingham couple’s caravan tour through Yorkshire. Tina (Alice Lowe) and Chris (Steve Oram) set out for a adult holiday much to the consternation of Tina’s infirm mother, Carol (Eileen Davies). Soon the romantic getaway descends into black farce after Chris reveals his disturbing pathological impulse and Tina keen to pleasure her man unleashes her inner sadomasochism . Funny and perturbing the road movie is similar to Mike Leigh’s Nuts in May 91976) only more violent.
