We all live in a yellow ...

We went to see Submarine last night and it was most excellent. April heard great reviews about it but couldn’t find anywhere local to go and see it. In the end the easiest place for us both to meet was the Curzon cinema in Soho.


But before that we went to a newish Mexican restaurant called Wahaca

Most excellent, 90% of the food on the menu was unpronounceable so we bravely opted for a sharing platter for two. As a score I’ll give it 7.5 out of 10, a Mexican Wagamamas would be the best way to describe it.

The Curzon was pretty cool too, lots of arty types in there plus a bar where you could take your drinks into the viewing with you. You don’t get that at the Tunbridge Wells Odeon.

A quote from IMDb

“15-year-old Oliver Tate has two objectives: To lose his virginity before his next birthday, and to extinguish the flame between his mother and an ex-lover who has resurfaced in her life.”

This pretty much sums it up but doesn’t describe how funny it was, I wouldn’t describe it as a laugh out loud film (although I did on numerous occasions) but it was very witty and very well made. Hats of for Richard Ayoade, it really is worth making the effort to find a cinema that’s showing it as I’m sure you’ll all enjoy it.
