Submarine

UK/US 2010 97mins Cert 15 Director: Richard Ayoade

“This generation’s Trainspotting,” according to the NME. Submarine is a touching, lyrical fantasy about a young boy’s rite of passage. Armed with a wide vocabulary and near-total self belief, schoolyard misfit Oliver Tate has two aims in life: to lose his virginity before he’s 15 and to stop his parents splitting up while he’s at it. DIrected by I.T. Crowd star Richard Ayoade, “a tremendous new voice in British film” and with music by Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner.
