Two mismatched lovers arrive at the British seaside town of Scarborough, seeking an escape from the constraints of real life. Liz (Jodhi May), beautiful yet desperately shy, seems older than her companion, the happy-go-lucky and impulsive Daz (Jordan Bolger). In their faded hotel room, amongst the peeling wallpaper and away from the prying eyes of their hometown, they laugh, quarrel, make love and enjoy their anonymity. In an identical room in the same hotel, the sensitive artist, Aiden (Edward Hogg), and Beth (Jessica Barden), a fiery and j impulsive young woman, tell the same story.
As both couples are forced to come to terms with the impossibilities of their love, power shifts from one lover to the other, and joy turns to heartache as they reel from the destructive force of illicit love.

DIRE - Scarborough review by AA

Spoiler Alert

Was so disappointed with this four hander, the acting was limited by the script and at times I felt they were going through the motions and sad to see Scarborough looking so run down from the times I used to visit regularly when I lived in Beverley and Hull!

Superb character drama from the UK - Scarborough review by AER

Spoiler Alert

Interesting if slightly flawed drama about a quartet of lovers who converge on a seaside hotel in the titular town. What starts out as a mirrored narrative, eventually diverges into something far less gimmicky. Once the awkward framing contrivances are abandoned and the plot begins to breathe, this story slowly begins to work its magic. Once you realise what is happening, as the clues begin to add up, this is a rewarding little film about people who's love is in very short supply, and those that are doomed to make the same mistakes over and over. Great performances from the central quartet help to paper over the early rocky patches.

Recommended for those that like films about people.

Not for me - Scarborough review by TH

Spoiler Alert

This felt very low budget with not much plot and nothing to hold my attention or interest. Cant really say much else.
