Submarine shortlisted for The Guardian First Film Award

11th January 2012|Richard Ayoade

Richard Ayoade's Submarine has been shotlisted as one of the ten nominees for the Guardian First Film Award 2012. The Guardian said: "It's a dark coming-of-age comedy about a lovelorn teenage boy in 1980s Swansea, written and directed by Ayoade, adapted from a novel by Joe Dunthorne, and executive produced by Ben Stiller, who appears in a subliminal cameo. Ayoade's film has absorbed the influences of Wes Anderson and Michel Gondry in its deadpan ironies and block capital sans-serif titles, but it's still really personal and confident."
