Released 2014 Rating 12A in UK
Director Andy Hamilton, Guy Jenkins Writer/s Andy Hamilton, Guy Jenkins
Starring Rosamund Pike, David Tennant, Billy Connolly, Ben Miller, Celia Imrie, Annette Crosbie
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A couple in the middle of a divorce get together to take their three children to a family gathering in Scotland, hoping to conceal their imminent separation from everyone attending.
Content Lots of dialogue, parents argue, children are cute, a slightly unsettling event occurs.
A View Much of this film is fun, particularly the parents arguing and the children being charming, but half way through it takes a slightly sombre turn with some frankly impossible logisitics, and I got a bit caught up with that. It won a prize at the Valladolid film festival. Andy Hamilton is the sharpest knife in the drawer!
