Socialist Worker


Issue No. 2263

Oliver Tate is a teenager coming to terms with growing up.

The pressures of life are all around him, as he tries to make it work out with his new girlfriend, school and his parents’ marriage problems.

Submarine is touching and sensitive, as well as very funny—in a bleak sort of way.

The cinematography is beautiful, and director Ayoade manages to bring the ordinary world of young Oliver and his friends and family to beautiful, colourful life.

Submarine, directed by Richard Ayoade, DVD, £9.99
