As Oliver daydreams about people's reaction to his death, he mentions 'Mr Dunthorne' (and his quavering voice). This could be the teacher or perhaps the Headmaster. Mr (Joe) Dunthorne is also the name of the author of the book upon which the film is based. See more »
All the way at the end of the movie, Oliver and Jordana are standing right next to each other on the beach, with Jordana's dog between them. Then the camera changes and they are seen from behind. Suddenly, they are much further apart and the dog is at the other side of Jordana. See more »
We sat down to have what might have been Jordana's mother's last Christmas dinner, which i hope it wasn't because the turkey was a bit dry and the sprouts were soggy and out of focus.

Most teen romance coming-of-age movies are completely predictable, especially the American ones. High school student, Oliver Tate, as played by Craig Roberts, reminded of an equally quirky Dustin Hoffman in "The Graduate." He wanders throughout this comedy with a wisdom far greater than those around him. He spies on his very strange mother & father and tries to keep a relationship with his girlfriend, Jordana(Yasmin Paige) going with very mixed results.
Writer-Director Richard Ayoade does a great job of keeping the pace moving with no wasted moments & a dialogue that is both witty & believable at the same time.
If you are in the mood for a film which will make you smile and even bring back some childhood memories, this a perfect choice; Ayoade is to be commended for a wonderful movie & I eagerly await his next project.
