Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Towards the end of the film, when Jordana sits next to her new boyfriend while talking to Oliver, she puts her hair back behind her ears. In the very next shot, her hair is back in front of her ears. See more »

Quotes

Oliver Tate: Dear Jordana. Thank you for letting me explore your perfect body. I could drink your blood, you are the only person that I would allow to be shrunken down to a microscopic size and swim inside me in a tiny submersible machine. We have lost our virginity but it wasn't like losing anything. You are too good for me, you are too good for anyone. Sincerely, Oliver.

Quirky and worthwhile film
31 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
