This film has a cute quirkiness to it that makes it better than most "coming of age" films and has a visual style that make it pleasing to watch. British wit is much more funnier than the banal easy American teenage sex comedies when all comes down to it though so it is easy to choose this one over any Hollywood comedy any day, anytime.
I've wanted to see this film for 4 years. It was on Amazon, but never Amazon Prime. Oh sure, I can watch the stupidhero movies like Avengers for free. I recently got a Amazon gift card, so I figured I'd break down and rent it. I love the director, so I can see his touches on this story, but the film is about as generic as they get. Boy meets girl, etcetera. Lots of strong performances. I'd say it's a good start.
