DOWNHILL

ON DVD AND DIGITAL PLATFORMS ON JUNE 16th, 2014

Four old school friends remind one another why they’ve not caught up in more than 20 years in acclaimed TV commercial director James Rouse’s hilarious feature debut, DOWNHILL, in cinemas on May 30th 2014 and available on DVD and digital platforms on June 16th.

Gordon (Richard Lumsden Sightseers, TV’s The Catherine Tate Show) is determined that he and best friend Keith (Karl Theobald – TV’s 2012, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa) will conquer Wainright’s Coast to Coast Walk from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire. He also believes that having his film student son document the adventure is the perfect way to commemorate their achievement, but when a stray conversation determines that old school friends Steve (Jeremy Swift Jupiter Ascending, TV’s Downton Abbey) and Julian (Ned DennehyTyrannosaur, TV’s Luther) join them on the trip, best laid plans lead straight to multiple mid-life crises.

Combining keenly observed situational comedy; some of Britain’s finest comedy talent and a breathtaking journey through some of the best of British countryside, DOWNHILL is a comedy of errors, a testament to the tragically incompatible and a blow-by-blow account of the highs and lows of decades-long friendships.
