Submarine 

In British comedian Richard Ayoade's directorial debut, Craig Roberts plays a smart, sensitive teenage kid who's trying to save his parents' failing marriage while winning the heart of an aloof classmate (Yasmin Paige). Submarine is funny and stylish, and shot in a way that gives the early 1980s an archaic glow, as though lit by candles and the setting sun. It ranges too far at times into Wes Anderson-y indie quirk, but like Anderson, Ayoade is able to convey the painful awkwardness beneath the stylization. This is a movie about immature emotions that uses its own poses to keep genuine feelings at bay.
