This film has got to be one of my favorites from recent years; it is a coming-of-age film that is a comedy mixed with a bit of darkness. I enjoyed everything from the cinematography to the language used. I even liked the outfits presented in the film, very fashionable set of characters. Though it shouldn't be, director Richard Ayoade is able to present Oliver Tates' (actually mostly every character) depression and sadness in a funny hysterical way. Plenty of irony is also present throughout the film making it that much better! I recommend this to anyone that likes to watch films in general.
