Capital Celluloid - Day 63: Friday Mar 4, 2011

Submarine (Ayoade, 2010): ICA 8.45pm

This was one of the highlights of the 2010 London Film Festival and garnered rave reviews, including this one in the Telegraph by David Gritten. He called it "the most refreshing, urgent and original debut the British film industry has seen in years."

Critic Charlie Lyne (aka Ultra Culture) of Film 2011 fame has been another champion of Richard Ayoade's debut film and Lyne is hosting this screening of Submarine which gets its British release on March 18. This is the sixth exclusive preview Lyne has put on at the ICA and reports from previous nights suggest an entertaining show is guaranteed. The Ultra Culture website, which Time Out described as "enjoyably snarky" this week is very much worth a look.

Tickets went pretty quickly for Submarine but a call to the ICA or requests via Twitter or Facebook might secure one if you are quick.

Here is a trailer.
