Exceptional Film

I thought this musical fantasy was a most pleasant and enjoyable film, filled with an appealing storyline, humor, and, of course, many delightful musical numbers.

Set in Glasgow, Emily Browning the stunning and talented Australian actress is superb as Eve, who's in treatment at a mental health facility for depression and an eating disorder. However, she'll often sneak out of the facility, at night, to visit local clubs, as she's an aspiring songwriter and singer.

One night at one of these clubs, she'll meet James, an idealistic young man and guitar player, whose day-job is being a lifeguard at the local university. Olly Alexander is exceptional, as James, and there's a noticeable chemistry between Eve and James, which will eventually lead to a very close friendship.

James is teaching guitar to another young woman, Cassie, ably portrayed by Hannah Murray, who also wants to sing and write songs. Soon, the three of them will form a strong bond, and look to form a band so they can try to play out their musical aspirations. However, in time, they'll have to make decisions about their lives and their futures.

The movie was written and directed by Stuart Murdoch, the lead singer of the Scottish band Belle and Sebastian, who were very involved in the musical productions here in the film. I thought his screenplay was very clever, and his direction of the musical numbers was extremely well done.

All in all, there were some elements here that reminded me of the great movie "Once", with its heartwarming themes and music. To me, this movie was a most pleasant surprise and an exceptional film.

Not much happening but still pleasant to watch

A movie about a young woman with an eating disorder trying to deal with the real life and using music.

It is a pretty nice idea. The movie doesn't really have much depth though. We don't really know much about characters and don't see them develop very far. It is just a little episode of their lives when they were talking about making a band.

The reason why it isn't a very deep movie is probably because it is a musical. There is more focus on the songs than on the characters and their personalities and stories. My problem in this case that I am not a fan of this kind of music. The songs had a pleasant sound to them but they all sounded kind of the same. Their performance was also not very exciting. Emily Browning was a great singer but there was nothing happening during the songs. Just some walking or sitting in a tub. The only song that stood out for me was the one they performed at the retirement home. This is probably because it was the one performance that seemed to have real energy and character.

Still the movie was not bad. I think what helped a lot were the visuals. The style and the settings were beautiful. My favorite part of the movie was them kayaking. Mainly because of the gorgeous scenery.

I adore the 2008. album God help the girl, but the movie is mainly below any expectation. Such a shame ... almost nothing works. maybe only two main characters are fine but the rest is so disappointing; other actors, story, tempo, etc..

I can't even remember if the title song is presented in the movie at all?? Someone else wrote that Hannay Murray is not the right actress for the role. I agree! I liked her in her role as long as she didn't sing. She ruined quite a few songs for me - not her fault, but directors/production

I wouldn't even recommend it to a hardcore fan of the God help the girl album. It just doesn't do justice to it.
