Richard Ayoade’s ‘Submarine’ at TIFF

Richard Ayoad

Richard Ayoade who plays Moss on The IT Crowd wrote the screenplay and directed the film Submarine. This is Ayoade’s feature debut and it gets a world premiere at TIFF next month.

I had to laugh when I read the description of the film on the TIFF website:

One boy must fight to save his mother from the advances of a mystic, and simultaneously lure his eczema-strafed girlfriend in to the bedroom, armed with only a vast vocabulary and near-total self-belief. His name is Oliver Tate.

It all sounds bizarre. I hope I get a chance to see the film and hope that it is half as funny as the premise. Ben Stiller is listed as one of the executive producers.
