A 15-year-old Welsh kid sets out to both lose his virginity and extinguish the flames of romance between his single mom and an ex-lover who has resurfaced in her life. Richard Ayoade (known to a handful of Americans as Moss on "The IT Crowd") wrote and directed this gloomy, brainy, coming-of-age dramedy. Ayoade adds wit and style, but like all films of this ilk (we just had The Art of Getting By last week), it borrows everything it's got from Catcher in the Rye, Harold and Maude and Rushmore. 97 minutes R.
