ricky gervais has my tummy in knots all the time. although this film isn't a straight up comedy, it still provided some pretty fucking brilliant laugh out loud moments. it also didn't hurt that tom hughes and christian cooke are such dreamboats and that i've developed a massive girl crush on felicity jones. but hotties aside, although there are loads of coming of age stories out there, what i really liked about this film is that its neither too saccharine, nor does it dwell too much on youthful angst. it just felt like a really sensitive and honest story about youthful ambition, friendships, love, and family with a pretty killer soundtrack. oh, and tom hughes getting his groove on at a northern soul party will make your pants wet.
