Gross box office receipts for the first month have totalled £3.7 million ($5.9 million).

What We Did On Our Holiday
Doug and Abi (David Tennant & Rosamund Pike) are two normal parents with three charming but highly eccentric children. When the strain of parental life threatens their sanity and marriage, they decide to take their kids on a trip to Scotland for a big family gathering and to see Doug's incomparably kooky father Gordie (Billy Connolly).

However what promised to be a holiday of reconciliation soon turns into an hilarious social minefield as feuds, misunderstandings and bruised egos become the order of the day.

When the children cause a completely unexpected turn of events, the family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk losing what they hold most dear.

The film also stars Ben Miller, Amelia Bullmore, Celia Imrie  and Annette Crosbie.

What We Did On Our Holiday screens on Friday 7th November at 17:00 at the Fairmont 2.

The American Film Market, which opens today and runs until November 12th, is an industry event aimed at professionals in the business of independent motion picture production and distribution. Over 8,000 industry leaders from over 70 countries will be converging in Santa Monica over the 8-day festival, including acquisition executives, distributors, film commissioners and the world’s press, to watch more than 700 screenings of approximately 400 films. A screening at the festival greatly increases the chance of What We Did On Our Holiday being picked up by a distributor for theatrical release in the USA.
