Ayoade's "Submarine" tops list of must see Indie movies

British Nigerian filmmaker Richard Ayoade's “Submarine” tops the list of Leonard Maltin’s five must see indie movies and you can see why and how he rated them on the Huffington Post.

1. Submarine
2. Cave of Forgotten Dreams
3. Midnight in Paris
4. Another Year
5. The Clowns

Ayoade is an only child of a Norwegian mother, Dagny (née Baassuik), and a Nigerian father, Layide Ade Laditi Ayoade.

The film is based on a prize-winning novel by Joe Dunthorne. It is a dark indie comedy about a 15-year-old Oliver Tate who 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.

Peter Bradshaw reviewing Submarine in the Guardian of Thursday 17 March 2011 15.00 GMT, said Ayoade clearly has “a big future payday for him in Hollywood, if he wants it, but I can't help hoping he develops in depth and scope here, as a tremendous new voice in British film.”
