Strong praise from the critics and word-of-mouth from festival goers at TIFF and Sundance have created an undeniable buzz around Richard Ayoade's "Submarine" and it certainly doesn't hurt to have Ben Stiller presenting your movie as it gets set to open for North American audiences.

Starring Craig Roberts and Yasmin Paige, "Submarine" tells the story of a fifteen year old boy with two goals he wishes to accomplish: lose his virginity and prevent his parents from divorcing. Yes, there the fingerprints of Wes Anderson and the French New Wave are all over this, but it also looks endearing and charming (our man at Sundance saw the film and called it a “promising debut”). Ayoade lined up a solid supporting cast for his film as well, with Paddy Considine, Noah Taylor and Sally Hawkins all appearing and as if that wasn't enough, "Submarine" features original songs by Arctic Monkeys front man Alex Turner.

All in all, this one we're greatly looking forward to. The Weinstein Company will release the film on June 3rd, check out the synopsis and trailer below (or in HD at Apple).

Fifteen-year-old Oliver Tate has two big ambitions: to save his parents' marriage via carefully plotted intervention and to lose his virginity before his next birthday. Worried that his mom is having an affair with New Age weirdo Graham, Oliver monitors his parents' sex life by charting the dimmer switch in their bedroom. He also forges suggestive love letters from his mom to dad. Meanwhile, Oliver attempts to woo his classmate, Jordana, a self-professed pyromaniac who supervises his journal writing - especially the bits about her. When necessary, she orders him to cross things out. Based on Joe Dunthorne's acclaimed novel, Submarine is a captivating coming-of-age story with an offbeat edge.
