Richard Ayoade's superb debut feature, Submarine, produced by NFF Board Member Ben Stiller, is coming to NFF 2011! This hilarious coming of age story tells the story of Oliver Tate (a breakout performance by Craig Roberts) who has two objectives: to lost his virginity before his 19th birthday and to keep his mother (Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky, An Education) away from a cheesy self-help guru, played by Paddy Considine (In America, director of Tyrannosaur).
Check out this interview with Richard Ayoade with the New York Times. You can also watch this Anatomy of a Scene where Ayoade discusses his French New Waves influences and the performances of his young stars, Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige. You can buy your tickets to Submarine at NFF 2011! This Spotlight Film plays Sunday, June 26th, at 3PM as the Sconset Casino.
