Downhill review

A stroll to remember...

Four old school friends reunite to tackle England’s Coast To Coast walk in this gentle, microbudget comedy, which resembles The World’s End or Sightseers shorn of their genre-shock.

Instead, it’s an amiable, acutely judged vision of male menopause, as the quartet’s attempted bucolic bacchanal teases out longstanding insecurities – not least because team leader Richard Lumsden has brought his son to film everything.

While nothing too surprising occurs, it’s a promising blend of wisdom and playfulness from big-screen newcomers Torben Betts and James Rouse.
