Submarine (2010)

Set in a damp Swansea, Wales, this quirky English indie film filled me up like a nice cup of tea on a rainy day.  Based on the novel by Joe Dunthorne, Oliver Tate deals with the dismantling of his parents marriage and his growing love for Jordana.  Then there are the twists, as an older lover from his mother’s past moves in next door and his beloved Jordana goes through her own set of family issues, Oliver trys to keep his life together.  Cleverly narrated and an exquisite soundtrack courtesy of the Arctic Monkeys’s Alex Turner, Submarine is the perfect film for a January afternoon.
