Movies Like Juno If You’re Looking for Something Similar

Submarine, Movie, Richard Ayoade, Juno

Based on the 2008 novel of the same name, Submarine is definitely one of the more unusual entries on this list. But can you expect anything different from eccentric British director and comedian, Richard Ayoade? Telling one of the most excitingly strange love stories in film, Submarine follows Welsh teen Oliver Tate (Craig Roberts) and his almost-unhealthy obsession with classmate, Yasmin Paige (Jordana Bevan).

The catalyst for Submarine’s story is when Yasmin unexpectedly approaches Oliver to take pictures of them kissing, an abrupt request fuelled by Yasmin’s desire to make her ex-boyfriend jealous. And so the two start their strange relationship and set the scene for a remarkably fresh and charming indie-romcom. Oliver’s monologues also add an extra layer of depth to the narrative, providing us with hilarious insight into his impulsive and often senseless adolescent reasoning. From start to finish, Submarine’s characters and cleverly-written plot will keep you captivated and pleasantly confused.

Why is it like Juno? It boasts a bunch of eccentric characters, a narrating protagonist and exudes the same witty charm albeit with a distinctive British edge. It’s basically Juno for the Brits.
