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.''

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 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This movie is set in the dark, funny, poignant demimonde of a Welsh teen-age boy. But before i discuss the movie, i want to offer a heartfelt "Thank you" to the Weinstein Company for including English subtitles. I don't understand why some companies release British films in America without including subtitles. A dialog-heavy movie such as Mike Leigh's "Another Year" is much less enjoyable when one can't make out occasional bits of the actors' lines. Similarly, most English detective series, such as "Prime Suspect" (which featured strong performances by Helen Mirren) are usually released without subtitles, depriving people like me of the opportunity to become fully engrossed because i can't make out about 20% of what is being said. As George Bernard Shaw noted, England and America are two countries are divided by a common language. Thank you, Weinstein Company and Anchor Bay for recognizing the wisdom in that bit of wit.

The main character both in action and perspective is Oliver (in a performance by Craig Roberts that hits all the right notes): a thoughtful, melancholy boy who inhabits that vast grey middle ground between the popular and the unpopular. His parents, well portrayed by Noah Taylor and the always enjoyable Sally Hawkins, were, apparently, at one time, a bit bohemian. But they have settled into a marriage also situated in the vast grey middle between the happy and the unhappy. His father, looking like a mild-mannered Rasputin, is a full-on nerd, is a marine biologist. His mother, once the sort of girl that men fought over now looks like a prim third-grade teacher. A repeated image in the movie is the three of them sitting almost trance-like in front of the television.

Format: DVD
The movie takes place in Wales. After missing the first joke, I added the English subtitles. The story is told in first person by school boy Oliver Tate who spends time daydreaming. His vivid imagination is humorous. Oliver has fantasies about Jordana, another semi-outcast. She uses Oliver to make her former boyfriend jealous. Jordana has eczema and likes to set fires. Oliver's mother is a paranoid who believes her tongue is too big for her mouth. Dad is a boring marine biologist who gives Oliver love advice, claiming that if you rip your vest open in front of a woman, you can get a positive response. Oliver believes his mom is having an affair with the neighbor Graham, her former boyfriend, who is a "ninja psychic."

Like too many indies, after they create wonderful quirky characters, the film moves to a less than spectacular climax scene and equally sub-par ending with lame music to make you feel good. 3 1/2 stars.

F-bomb, sex talk. No Nudity.

Submarine trumps even Rushmore, although I love Rushmore. But it was re-watching Rushmore that prompted my daughter to suggest Submarine. Wes Anderson has a "twee" factor that has gotten out of hand recently, but Submarine has none of that. It helps that it is British, with the sardonic and subtle irony that the British are so good at, but also that the cast is largely unknown to most Americans, (although we may remember Sally Hawkins from Blue Jasmine and previously from her wonderful debut (in America, at least) Happy Go Lucky. Submarine is unexpected and rewarding, at the same time there is mystery and magic there without pretentiously calling attention to itself. The mixture between the young man's fantasy view of life and the real tragedies and mishaps that intrude (I won't give them away!) make this a wonderful coming of age story for all ages. It's funny, it's stylish, the acting and directing are great and the music is wonderful.
