Submarine 2011

Submarine is a 2010 coming-of-age comedy-drama film adapted from the 2008 novel of the same name by Joe Dunthorne. The film is directed by Richard Ayoade and stars Craig Roberts, Yasmin Paige, Sally Hawkins and Paddy Considine. The film is Ayoade’s directorial debut.

Plot: Oliver Tate (Roberts) is a 15 year-old Swansea boy who is convinced that he is an unrivaled genius, fantasizing about the impact on the public from his untimely death, when in fact he is an unsocial and alienated. He is in love with a mischievous but straight-talking girl named Jordana (Paige) in his year, and goes as far as bullying people to impress her. One day he agrees to meet with her after school to help devise a method of making her ex-boyfriend jealous, in where she takes photos of them kissing and makes fake diary entrances, and leaves them around the school. However this plan backfires and the two are seen the next day cornered in a courtyard by the entire year being taunted and jeered at, Oliver being kept in a headlock until he calls himself gay, and says to Jordana that she’s a slut. When he refuses to do the latter, and mocks the bully, the next scene shows them both lying in the courtyard, Oliver with a bloodied nose. When they walk home, they suddenly kiss, and Oliver quickly establishes Jordana as his girlfriend.
