Suntan ★★★★

Tagged as comedy/drama but it's really a psychological horror film. An unfulfilled life is faced with the dread of loneliness and boredom, until a glimmer of hope appears in the shape of a young woman. Except to get to her, our hero must endure the pain of blending in and having (or trying to have) fun with young people. Normally, hilarity would ensue but this isn't a rom-com so instead we get to witness a show of mental breakdown and self-humiliation that is more and more difficult to watch but gripping nevertheless.
