Overview – Sightseers is emphatically not in your Aunt Nelly. Truly, it is not appropriate for my dad, many of the run-of-the-mill Saturday evening cinema-goers, Each day Mail readers or the die-hard caravan homeowners who embark on such highway journeys. To be sincere, Sightseers is not proper for many individuals at all; it is what you may name a distinct segment movie. It’ll fulfill a minority viewers, however these few who do relish the considered one other darkish, very darkish, British comedy are going to utterly enjoyment of it.
Falling someplace between Dexter and The League of Gents (and if you do not know it, attempt Massive Girl out for measurement – a Desert Island Disc if I am ever invited on), Sightseers is a highway film about an odd couple with all method of demons swirling round their minds. Tina (Alice Lowe) nonetheless lives along with her mum, has been traumatized by the dying of her canine, Poppy, and knits. Having seen nothing of the world, an invite from her new boyfriend, Chris (Steve Oram), to hitch him on a caravan vacation round Yorkshire with an itinerary that features a tram village and a pencil museum, is tantamount to a golden ticket to a brand new life. Nevertheless, her overbearing, overly dependent witch of a mom does not need her to go and Chris has an indignant streak with murderous penalties.
