Director: Richard Ayoade

UK/USA • 2010 • Drama • 97 mins • English

The IT Crowd’s Richard Ayoade makes his debut as a writer-director with this light-hearted and quirky coming-of-age drama based on Joe Dunthorne’s original novel. Pretentious fi fteen-year-old Swansea schoolboy Oliver Tate is convinced of his own unrivalled genius and popularity and has set a number of goals to be achieved before his next birthday: to achieve sexual maturity and extinguish the flame between his mother and her ex-lover. When mischievous bob-haired Jordana takes an interest in him, Oliver tries to take to the boyfriend role diligently, unaware of her ulterior motives. A fresh and funny film with an excellent score by Alex Turner of The Arctic Monkeys.
