Gordon (Richard Lumsden – Sightseers) is determined that he and best friend Keith (Karl Theobald – Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa) will conquer Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk from St. Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire. But when a stray conversation determines that old school friends Steve (Jeremy Swift – TV’s Downton Abbey) and Julian (Ned Dennehy – TV’s Luther) join them on the trip, their best-laid plans reveal multiple mid-life crises. Downhill is a comedy of errors, a testament to the tragically incompatible and a blow-by-blow account of the highs and lows of decades-long friendships.
Directed by James Rouse, produced by Benji Howell and written by Torben Betts.
