Last year with the release of Ben Wheatly’s Kill List it really solidified his spot as one of the most exciting up and coming directors. Upon its success he quickly turned his attention to his next project, Sightseers. His latest effort is set for a November 30th release in UK theaters as well as a screening next month at TIFF. British director Ben Wheatly’s Sightseers is a dark comedy about a couple who go on a killing spree while on a caravan holiday and is being produced by Edgar Wright; a deadly combination. IFC Films will be releasing the film here in the U.S.
“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…”
