'Submarine' Trailer Gives A Heaping Portion Of British Indie
It's quirky, but it doesn't aggravate my gag reflex. I've never been so confused. It's easy to dismiss the trailer for Submarine as Britain's pass at quirky-for-the-sake-of-quirky indie cinema (I did the first time I watched the trailer), but the trailer seems to have all the hallmarks of indie cinema with none of the derivation. It reads like an About a Boy sequel, with all the sentiment coming from the likes of a Nick Hornby, rather than a Zach Braff or Diablo Cody. The Shins won't change your life in Submarine, and Michael Cera is nowhere to be found (possibly off somewhere making pop-pop). So peep Submarine and watch a weird British kid pursue love as awkwardly as British people do everything else.
