Movie Info

Oliver (Craig Roberts) is a Welsh teen who has some things on his mind. First is losing his virginity before his 16th birthday. He sets out to woo his feisty classmate Jordana (Yasmin Paige). Then Oliver focuses on holding his family together. His father (Noah Taylor), a depressed marine biologist, seems unequal to the task of preventing Oliver's mother (Sally Hawkins) from succumbing to the dubious charms of a spiritual guru (Paddy Considine) from down the road.

Audience Reviews for Submarine

  • Oct 08, 2015
    Submarine is cynical, depressive, colorful, and quirky -- a very British film. It is somewhere between a comedy and drama, with the comedy mostly revolving around scenes of embarrassment. While there is not much to be said for the plot or characters, Submarine is very well made.

    coming of age yadda yadda yadda with Richard ayode of IT crowd fame writing and directing. I wanted it to work but it just falls so short and is nothing we haven't seen all before. you can clearly see its influences and it's not nearly rough enough around the edges to stand the test of time. turning it off and on again wont change this

    Confident, idiosyncratic and quirky film with two great performances from Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige and a distinctive directorial style that reminded me of early Wes Anderson. Very enjoyable with a melancholic edge.
