Comedy, Coming of Age
Fifteen-year-old Welsh schoolboy Oliver Tate has two urgent objectives: to lose his virginity to fiery classmate Jordana and to stop a new age guru from running off with his mum. As this British coming-of-age comedy deliciously illustrates, these things are easier said than done. Because what goes on in Oliver’s mind has little bearing on reality - particularly since he’s a duffle-coated social outsider, rather than the coolly sophisticated hero he imagines himself to be. The angst-filled struggles towards manhood that follow are hilarious and affecting, aided by brilliant performances and cracking dialogue. Along the way, a series of witty visual devices provide additional fun, while giving literal form to the self-absorbed drama playing in Oliver’s head. Directed by comedian and director Richard Ayoade, this is now established as a classic British coming-of-age film.
