What We Did On Our Holiday
A hilarious journey through an unforgettable family holiday as a couple attempts to keep their impending divorce secret from their extended family.
Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children travel to the Scottish Highlands for Doug’s father Gordie’s (Billy Connolly) birthday party, where it’s soon clear that when it comes to keeping their secret under wraps their children are their biggest liability.From nine year old Lottie’s notebook to keep track of the lies so she remembers which ones to tell, to four year old Jess’s perverse attachment to a brick named Norman, for their parents a week has never seemed such a long time. But it’s middle child Mickey and his granddad’s shared passion for Vikings which gives rise to the most far-reaching and unexpected consequences. When a day at the beach turns to tragedy, the children take matters into their own hands…
What We Did In Our Holiday also stars Ben Miller, Amelia Bullmore, Celia Imrie and Annette Crosbie, and features some amazing and heartwarming performances from young actors Emilia Jones, Bobby Smalldridge, Harriet Turnbull and Lewis Davie.
The film is the directorial debut of comedy writing team Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, the duo between the BBC's award-winning sitcom Outnumbered. What We Did On Our Holiday is a co-production between BBC Films and Origin Pictures in association with Creative Scotland and LipSync Productions.
The film goes on general release in the UK on Friday 26th September
