East of Ipswich, DVD



Michael Palin pens this coming-of-age comedy drama based on memories of his own childhood holidays in the 1950s.

Bored teenager Richard (Edward Rawle-Hicks) is a reluctant holiday-maker staying at a guest house on the Suffolk coast with his parents.

Things start to look up when he is befriended by the confident and gregarious Edwin (John Wagland).

Giving their parents the slip, the pair embark on an illicit mission to meet girls and experience a bit of life.
