British comedy film from the creators of The Inbetweeners. After Nick’s girlfriend dumps him, his best mate Shane has the perfect antidote to his break-up blues: three days at an epic music festival.
Exams, virginity loss, lads’ holidays and gap years; British writer-director Iain Morris has spent the last 10 years taking the piss out of teenage rites of passage, humiliating four dweeby sixth-formers better known as The Inbetweeners in the process. Morris’s hit sitcomspawned two spinoff films that took its characters on tour: the first, on an all-inclusive trip to Malia, the second, to “find” themselves in Australia. His new film, The Festival, takes on the myths – and the mud – of Glastonbury; though no characters cross over from The Inbetweeners universe, the film works as a kind of spiritual sequel.
