Sightseers tells the story of a very ordinary caravanning couple from the Midlands, who travel across the country...before things turn dark.
Last night, the writers and actors from the film were at a preview screening at the Electric Cinema in Birmingham.
Chris, (played by Steve Oram, from Kenilworth), wants to show Tina, (played by Alice Lowe, from Worcester), 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...
