The increasing tension between man and boy pushes his mother into choosing between them, a choice devastating to Goob but the spur to becoming his own man.


We’re in the middle of a heat wave in Fenland, England. Goob Taylor has spent each of his sixteen summers helping his Mum run the transport cafe and harvest the surrounding pumpkin fields. 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.

Reviews

**** "A really intelligent essay in classic Brit social realism, well-acted and beautifully photographed by cinematographer Simon Tindall." (The Guardian)

 

**** "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."  (The Times)
