Flix is a weekly series that reviews a movie available on Netflix. This week, I review the 2010 film ‘Submarine.’ Every now and then, we come across a film that manages to be so delightfully sentimental, we can’t help but fall in love with its adorableness. Perhaps the film’s adorableness is rooted in its nostalgic look at a world the audience has either forgotten about or never actually had. In the case of Richard Ayoade’s 2010 coming-of-age film ‘Submarine,’ the nostalgia and sentimentality are palpable. ‘Submarine’ follows precocious 15-year-old Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts) as he faces the trials of adolescence in Swansea, Wales in the 1960s. Over the course of its 97-minute runtime, the film tackles themes like the degradation of family, lost love and societal isolation. Although its story may seem a little trite, the setting and style Ayoade uses to craft his film breathes freshness into the movie. The film has all the quirkiness of a Wes Anderson movie and at times seems like a grittier, more rebellious version of ‘Moonrise Kingdom.’ But ‘Submarine’ comes off more believable than Anderson’s 2012 film. Actors Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige (who plays Oliver’s love interest, Jordana Bevan) portray their characters with this heightened level of candidness that captures all the angst and awkwardness of adolescence. The peculiar chemistry between the two leads, though a little stilted, works to highlight the tension between their characters. As Yasmin Paige’s cynical and dispassionate Jordana Bevan reluctantly enters a relationship with the sensible and poetic Oliver, she continually exhibits emotional distance from him. For the first half of the movie, Oliver continually works to break down Jordana’s apparent apathy towards him, only to face the emotional strifes following his parents’ deteriorating marriage.
