The Goob

Description
Young Goob, 16 years old, returns home to his mother where he grew up in the countryside, between a small restaurant and a field of pumpkins. When his Mum shacks up with swarthy stock car driving supremo and ladies' man Gene Womack, Goob becomes an unwelcome side thought. However Goob's world turns when exotic pumpkin picker Eva arrives. Fuelled by her flirtatious comments, Goob dreams of better things.

A wordless montage of the Goob's night-long first date with one of the migrant pickers who harvest the crops is transcendent.

There is a skittishness to Guy Myhill's debut that initially feels impressionistic but ultimately seems like carelessness as his narrative weaves unsteadily through its central character's coming of age, unsure where to place its emphasis.

Doesn't quite live up to its early promise, but still a solid debut from first-time British writer/director.

Both alluring and achingly desolate ... It's hard to say what Myhill's goal for film is, apart placing Norfolk centre stage.

Some typical Britfilm flourishes are present and correct - moody shots of the Goob whipping through the long grass, brandishing a stick - but the Norfolk setting, its sincere leads and an affecting score keep things a touch above the usual.

A really intelligent essay in classic Brit social realism, well-acted and beautifully photographed by cinematographer Simon Tindall.

Despite the wide-open scenery, the film exerts a forceful, pressure-cooker sense of claustrophobic inevitability.

Myhill's debut has admirable artistic ambition and a pungent sense of place and longing.

The writer-director Guy Myhill brings an engaging mix of abrasiveness and lyricism to a film that seems at times like a British equivalent to David Gordon Green's early films.

At the centre of it all, lanky newcomer Walpole gives a remarkable, sympathetic performance as a boy on the cusp of manhood, struggling with the pressures of a small-town environment and a half-formed desire for something more.

The Goob is less about linear narrative than presenting a fragmentary drift of events and a spirit of place that's deeply claustrophobic.

The setting for Guy Myhill's terrific coming-of-age drama The Goob is the wind-blasted flatland of rural Norfolk, but there's a reckless, lawless quality to this land and its community that evokes the backwoods of America's deep south.
