Goob has spent each of his summers helping his mum run the transport cafe and harvest the surrounding beet fields. When she shacks up with ladies’ man Gene Womack, Goob becomes an unwelcome side thought. However Goob’s world turns when exotic beet picker Eva arrives, and he dreams of better things.

MUBI's take

A coming-of-age tale with a dash of Hamlet, The Goob charts a summer of agony and ecstasy in rural Norfolk, a part of England rarely depicted on screen, and certainly not as stylishly as this. Playing a violence-prone stock car racer, Sean Harris adds another memorable antagonist to his resume.
