Watch List: Submarine
Submarine is an indie british film directed by writer, director and comedian Richard Ayoade. Most people will know him as the black dude from the IT crowd. Ayoade is quite a talent and previously directed music videos for the Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian and The Yeah Yeah Yeah's. Submarine, based on the novel by Joe Dunthorne is his feature film directorial debut. It follows a fifteen year old boy whose two main objectives in life are to lose his virginity and to stop his mother from leaving his father for her dance teacher.Distribution rights for the film were bought by The Weinstein company and it's been very well received at film festivals. The film is out later this year and big things are predicted for it. It also stars the fantastic Paddy Considine, I can't wait to see it.
