EAGLE vs SHARK***15.

IF you liked Napoleon Dynamite and Me And You And Everyone We Know, here's another helping of indie-geek that's as romantically awkward and whimsically comical as the back catalogue of Belle and Sebastian albums. Fast food waitress Lily (Loren Horsley) is a classic loser who fancies dorky Jarrod (Jemaine Clement), who is too obsessed by getting back at a school bully to notice. Real characters and emotions lurk beneath their stereotypes and the film stumbles upon some charming truths. However, the comedy might be too eccentric for most audiences to appreciate.
