Editorial Reviews

Young Oliver Tate's coming of age is coming even sooner than expected. Prone to daydreaming, listening to French crooners and indulging other self-absorbed fantasies, Oliver (Craig Roberts) suddenly finds himself submerged in real-life, dual challenges -- plotting to lose his virginity with a quirky new girlfriend (Yasmin Paige), while also struggling to reconcile his parent's (Golden Globe® winner Sally Hawkins and Noah Taylor) marriage, even though his mom seems smitten with the self-help guru next door (Paddy Considine). This charmingly original comedy from executive producer Ben Stiller and writer/director Richard Ayoade, has been pronounced by Vogue magazine ''a charming mix of quirk and cool.''

Customer Reviews

The film is interesting and has depth, but tries to do too much in the editing process.
J. Wiles Parker
He finds himself with his first girlfriend, a peculiar firebug (Paige), while trying to save his peculiar parents' peculiarly sexless marriage.
D. Spillers
There is some great satire in this funny off beat film, great acting, and very nice writing.

Format: Blu-ray
Being a fan of Richard Ayoade from "The Mighty Boosh" and "The IT Crowd," I was eager to check out his feature film debut "Submarine." As the writer and director of this offbeat coming-of-age story, Ayoade demonstrates a deft hand balancing a narrative that is simultaneously outrageous and surprisingly grounded. Championed by Ben Stiller (who takes an executive producer credit), the movie has moments of laugh-out-loud humor to be sure--but it is much more than a conventional teenage romp. I hate using the term quirky as a descriptor. Quirk, as I've often and loudly proclaimed, is the curse of independent cinema. Too many times, eccentric characters and unbelievable situations abound in quirky coming-of-age stories that drain real life relatability out of the comedy. "Submarine," however, employs a real restraint. Its deadpan tone and clever script are its strongest assets in conveying a story that, despite its occasional wackiness, presents identifiable dilemmas and believable protagonists.

Set in contemporary Wales, "Submarine" introduces a high school outsider played by Craig Roberts. Roberts contends with the traditional angst of a boy of fifteen. Trying to navigate the pitfalls of school and, in the process, score his first real girlfriend--Roberts has an understated charm that is pivotal to the success of the film. Even at his most gloriously frustrating, Roberts always holds the story together as one of the most strikingly original heroes I've seen in a while. In addition to his blossoming romance with a very challenging partner, his life faces further upheaval as his parent's marriage seems to be on the brink of destruction. His mother (the always reliable Sally Hawkins) is spending a lot of time with an old paramour who happens to be a neighbor (Paddy Considine).

Format: DVD
It's a short putt from here to a Wes Anderson movie, so if you like Anderson, this should do you just fine.

Here's the scoop. Fourteen year old Oliver Tate is in love with his classmate Jordana Bevan. Oliver's folks are having issues in their marriage and mom's old flame has moved in next door. Oliver feels compelled to get the girl and save his folks' marriage.

This is a quirky flick. Oliver is young and too bright for his age so he comes off as kind of gorpy. Jordana seems nice enough but has a dark side and harbors issues regarding closeness and commitment. Of course Oliver only sees what he wants to see in her because he wants to get in her nickers. His mom seems normal enough but dad is an intellectual stick in the mud. Her old flame is way too into himself and his "New Age" guru travelling show, but he's more alive than dad. This film does much to give the viewer the sense of the craziness one experiences when coming of age. The awkwardness and missteps are all brought to the forefront.

Again, this is a very quirky movie. It's set in Whales and sometimes the accents and Oliver's rapid fire delivery of a line kept me from getting everything, but I enjoyed it just the same. And this is only a happy-ish ending. You get the feeling that Oliver and Jordana, if they move into the future together, might not end up as the storybook happy couple. They both have issues to work on.

This is director Richard Ayoade's first feature length film, but he seems to have already found a voice. This is so good I will easily look forward to seeing his next outing

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Fifteen-year-old Oliver Tate, who is coming of age in late eighties Great Britain, is your typical indie movie teen: bright, self-conscious and moody. He has the requisite quirky girlfriend (Yasmine Paige), the pal who gives well-meaning but inaccurate advice about relationships; and two parents (Noah Taylor and Sally Hawkins) who are slowly drifting apart, as the result of an old beau (Paddy Considine) turned self-help guru who has moved in next door.

Since Oliver's girlfriend has family problems of her own, he wants to be the "best" boyfriend he can be, but he's also concerned with keeping his parents together, monitoring their whereabouts with a rather stalker-like intensity. These are laudable goals, but unfortunately, everyone ends the film not a whole lot happier than they were when they began. The film reminded me of "Harold and Maude" (Tate bears an eerie resemblance to a young Bud Cort and is somewhat concerned with death) and "Rushmore," but while Harold learned that there was more to life than attending funerals, and Max Fischer produced a successful play and accepted that he can't always meddle in adults' lives, Oliver doesn't really seem to change over the course of the movie. But a lot of reviewers have used words like "genius" to describe this film, so I may be in the minority. Maybe the changes in his character were just too subtle for me to notice.

Format: Blu-ray
This wry, sly, acerbic and often off-center coming of age story is the best UK indie import I've seen in a long time. Stylishly directed by British comic Richard Ayoade, the story revolves around a quirky, precocious, sometimes mordant teen (Craig Roberts) who works at impressing a semi-pretty classmate in his seaside Welsh village while simultaneously attempting to save his coolly remote parents' marriage. Dramatic and funny, this great looking film perfectly conveys the awkwardness of adolescence as well as it's fleeting rewards. I love these "English Village" movies with their dark humor. If this is your cup of tea, check out TAMARA DREWE, KEEPING MUM and UNDERTAKING BETTY.
