Submarine

Director: Richard Ayoade

Starring: Craig Roberts, Sally Hawkins, Paddy Considine, Yasmin Paige.

Based on Joe Dunthorne’s coming-of-age novel and set in the Welsh seaside town of Swansea, Submarine tells the tale of precocious teenager Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts), who is determined to lose his virginity and save his parents' marriage before his next birthday. Oliver imagines his mother (Sally Hawkins) may be having an affair with an old flame, Graham (Paddy Considine) and the 15 year old is determined to do something about it. Meanwhile the youth keeps a journal which is scrupulously monitored by Jordana (Yasmin Paige), his domineering school class paramour. Starts off quite funny but the longer the movie the more melancholic it becomes, but the music is not bad.
