Dir: Jason Wingard

When half-brothers Omar and Pete lose the grandmother they grew up with, they decide to set off for Blackpool together in search of Omar’s estranged father
This below-par comedy is the feature length adaptation of the director’s 2013 short film Going to Mecca. As it is set in Blackpool, it is perhaps no surprise that there are glimpses of the town’s new Flexity 2 trams, but all are distant views. It does, however, feature a brief shot of a Northern Rail Class 150/2 ‘Sprinter’ DMU pulling away from Blackpool Pleasure Beach station, which also appeared in Going to Mecca (qv).
