What We Did On Our Holiday
What We Did on Our Holiday is a BBC comedy film starring David Tennant, Rosamund Pike, and Billy Connolly. It is Directed by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin, the makers of the BBC TV series 'Outnumbered'.
Doug and Abi are taking their three children on a trip to Scotland for a big family gathering. They are in the midst of a difficult divorce, and have asked the kids to keep it a secret from their extended family. But as the inevitable feuds kick in, a completely unexpected turn of events involving the children causes further tensions to rise to the surface. And with the repercussions that ensue - hilarious and emotional in equal measure - the family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk losing what they hold most dear.
The film received praise from the critics as a classic British comedy. 'The script has winning sentimentality and a morbidly funny Ealing flavour. [It has] sincerity and genuine charm': The Telegraph. 'It’s impossible not to enjoy this big-hearted and sweet-natured British family movie from Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin - ambitious and likable family fun': The Guardian.
We Did on Our Holiday was filmed on location in Glasgow and the Scottish
Highlands between 27th June and 2nd August 2013. The film was released
in the UK on 26th September 2014.
