Writer/director Richard Ayoade adapts author Joe Dunthorne's acerbic coming-of-age novel to the big screen with this comedy centered on the efforts of precocious Welsh 15-year-old Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts) to lose his virginity before his next birthday, and to prevent his mother (Sally Hawkins) from having an affair with a smooth-talking spiritual guru (Paddy Considine) after his morose father (Noah Taylor) loses the will to fight for his marriage. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Well I often watch a few Independent movies, and I thought maybe I should watch this, although I was skeptical when I noticed it saying "Ben Stiller Presents" But in all I felt that this movie touched me in a way that me and him were the same facing the same troubles as we try to just solve things in life. I ended up crying for hours after the movie was over. But I guess we can see movies in different ways.
I really enjoyed this movie. I usually don't watch films like this, but I am glad I did. It was worth my time because the characters were quite quirky, funny, and interesting. The story line was original, for the most part, and not played out!
