Sightseers (UK, 2012) 90' 16/12/2013

Sightseers is a British black comedy film directed by Ben Wheatley. Chris (Steve Oram) is a caravan fan and aspiring writer who takes his girlfriend Tina (Alice Lowe) on a road trip, much to the chagrin of Tina's mother. At one of their stops, Chris yells at a man who is littering. When they get back to their car, Chriss accidentally runs him over and kills him, which upsets the couple but they continue onward on their trip. That accident would be the firs of a series of misfortune events.

The film was selected to be screened in the Directors' Fortnight section at 2012 Cannes Film Festival. It got good reviews.
"Wheatley is strikingly effective in his manipulation of tone, establishing a queasy intimacy that only intensifies as the movie progresses". Ben Sachs. Chicago Reader. 16/05/2013
