Exclusive Clip For British Indie ‘Downhill’

12 June 2014 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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 now and available on DVD and digital platforms on June 16th.

Gordon (Richard Lumsden) is determined that he and best friend Keith (Karl Theobald) 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) and Julian (Ned Dennehy) join them on the trip, best laid plans lead straight to multiple mid-life crises.

Downhill Review

27 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

As a style of filmmaking that has been severely overcooked in the horror genre, spawning a variety of unoriginal, hackneyed productions, handheld footage has certainly served comedy somewhat more favourably. It simply has so much scope to it in such a department, provoking realism and encouraging improvisation. With the likes of This Is Spinal Tap illuminating the sub-genre, and The Office and The Thick of It also triumphing on the smaller screen, James Rouse has followed on in their footsteps with his amiable debut production, Downhill.

The film explores four old school friends and now middle-aged men, reuniting to embark on a coast to coast walk. Gordon (Richard Lumsden) is the ringleader, bringing together Keith (Karl Theobald), Steve (Jeremy Swift) and Julian (Ned Dennehy) for this arduous, yet enlightening adventure, while his young son documents the entire journey on film.

Where Downhill truly shines, is within the naturalistic approach taken, »

Film Review: British Import ‘Alan Partridge’ With Steve Coogan is Just Plain Silly

26 April 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Before earning Oscar nom validation for his “Philomena” screenplay last year, British comedian Steve Coogan led a separate life as Alan Partridge, a dopey media personality who symbolized the danger of empowering clowns like him with a microphone, whether on a news program, a late night show, or in a radio booth.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

A daffy concoction co-created by Armando Iannucci (of HBO’s “Veep” and the satirical film “In the Loop”), the character has bopped around different BBC series for years, until now getting his first feature film. With Coogan given a rare opportunity to show his prowess stateside as a lead comedian (he has appeared in “The Other Guys,” “Tropic Thunder,” and “Our Idiot Brother” in side roles), this British comedy does have a special charm. But even a certified comedian can only take a spotty collection of bits so far.

The latest adventure for Partridge finds him »
