Victoria Jelinek


Submarine

Oliver Tate is besotted with a feisty girl in his class at school, Jordana. But as he embarks on his first relationship, he also frets over the troubles in his parents’ relationship, problems exacerbated by one of his mother’s exes moving in down the street.

This is Richard Ayoade’s directorial debut and he has hit it ‘right on the money’ with savvy visual references, a good script and cast. Adapted from Joe Dunthorne’s novel, the script is humorous and sly. Aiding the script are well-cast actors in all of the roles whose characters offset the quirky, dark tendencies of the movie with a warmth and likability.

A coming of age tale that blends cool, quirky comedy with warm-hearted drama.
