It would be hard to think of a director who’s absorbed Wes Anderson’s irony-under-glass aesthetic as slavishly as Richard Ayoade, who made this coyly monotonous Welsh coming-of-age confection. It’s about Oliver (Craig Roberts), a teenager who never takes off his duffle coat or changes his owlish expression. He dates a classmate, but mostly he tries to keep his mum (Sally Hawkins) from falling for a mulleted mystic (Paddy Considine). The film is so self-conscious it seems to be dictating your every reaction. C
