Fear and loathing on the English countryside

In SIGHTSEERS, caravan enthusiast Chris and his girlfriend Tina set out to experience the glory of the English countryside. However, when Chris accidentally hits a man with his car and kills him, it signals the start of a very peculiar – and very bloody – journey. With his third feature film, director Ben Wheatley returns to the highly idiosyncratic mix of humor and violence from his 2009 debut DOWN TERRACE. SIGHTSEERS is a jet black comedy about two apparently unremarkable people who turn out to be raging psychopaths.

 

Ben Wheatley

Considered one of Britain's most significant young directors, BEN WHEATLEY's career began when his short films went viral. After directing comedy series, he wrote, produced and directed his first feature film, DOWN TERRACE (2009), which won numerous awards.
