Super November is a hugely ambitious mixture of mumblecore-style romantic comedy and Orwellian dystopia. Clydebank librarian Josie (Josie Long) is all loved up and has found her soulmate in the equally besotted Mikey (Sean Biggerstaff). Six months later, the bubble has burst and things are very different, as the country has plunged into a political crisis, there is civil unrest on the streets and normality is a distant memory. Welcome to the harsh, fast changing landscape of the real world.
Was shot in two sections, one in June and one in November. The weather was so miserable in Glasgow in June that the director gave Josie Long a haircut for the November shoot in order to make it easier for the audience to differentiate between the two seasons. See more »
Some unusual character names in closing credits: "Ghost Adulterer - Stephanie Gibson"; "Stunt Feet - Katie Welsh"; "Bus Stop Murderer - Jamie Cooper"; "Library Shusher - Amy King" See more »
A Brilliant debut feature
This is a really good film that feels like an entertaining take on a social realism approach to film making although I might be talking nonsense there is always a chance of that. But I really loved this film. It's a crisp, funny script and the film had my gripped throughout. I remember feeling the same way while watching red road for the first time. I can't wait to watch Douglas King and Josie Long's next feature film.
