SIGHTSEERS is an upcoming British black comedy thriller film directed by Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace and Kill List) and written by and stars Alice Lowe and Steve Oram, with additional material from Amy Jump. The film was screened in the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
Chris (Oram) wants to show Tina (Lowe) his world and he wants to do it his way - on a journey through this sceptred isle in his beloved 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.
