Bank Holiday

Bank Holiday

About

Insubstantial but amusing ensemble piece following the adventures of a bunch of characters stranded in Brighton on a bank holiday. Well-crafted and featuring a host of character actors, many of whom would go on to greater things (especially noteworthy is Lockwood in the same year The Lady Vanishes made her a star), Bank Holiday is still a delight to watch.
