A Field in England is a testament to what weirdness the husband-and-wife, writer-director combo Ben Wheatley and Amy Jump can conjure up with just a handful of ingredients.
It’s the week of Valentine’s, but I’m not sure if love is in this frigid, arctic air. While there’s certainly no lack of romantic films slated to play in the Twin Cities, there’s no real surplus of them either. And that’s cool with me.
Directed by Ben Wheatley, Sightseers follows an awkward UK couple as they vacation in a camper (or caravan) through the countryside, visiting campgrounds and museums dedicated feats of English ingenuity, like tram cars and pencils. That might sound kind of ho-hum, but once blood first-blood is spilled, the couple turns from middle class lovebirds to something like Bonnie and Clyde.
