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. But as this quirky, 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 inadequate, 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, nods to French New Wave cinema and other arty visual devices provide additional fun, while giving literal form to the self-absorbed drama playing in Oliver’s head.
